Malas are prayer beads, which are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra. Mantra means “sacred sound.” They are used for different purposes linked to working with mind. In addition to serving a counting function, malas facilitate one-pointed concentration and serve as a tool for connecting, body, speech and mind during one’s meditation practice. Malas of 108 beads are used in Tibetan Buddhism, corresponding to the 108 worldly sins that each bead symbolically dissolves. Carnelian is a stone of happiness and hope. It releases sorrow, envy, fear, apathy, and rage and increases stamina and self confidence. Works with the Navel Chakra.
