The word MALA literally means garland
It is a holy instrument used for meditation and pray but you can also wear it as a long necklace or a bracelet.
It is composed by a variable number of beads, usually multiple of nine: the beads can be both pierced one after
the other and tied up one by one to symbolize the subtle connection existing among each part of the creation.
They can be made of different materials such as stones, minerals, wood, bones or seeds from special plants.
The particular powers given to Malas depend on the materials and colors they are made of as any of them transmits its own energy. To offer a Mala to someone is considered as an important and deep act, coming from heart.
