Mala beads, also known as prayer beads or Buddhist beads are a sacred tool used during meditation to count the number of times a mantra or chant is recited. With 108 being an auspicious sacred number to recite mantras, traditional Mala beads come as a string of 108 beads plus one main “Guru” bead.
Hindu tradition explains that the correct way to use a mala is with the right hand, with the thumb flicking one bead to the next, and with the mala draped over the middle finger. The index finger represents the ego, the greatest impediment to Self-Realization, therefore it is considered best to avoid using the index finger (the ego) when chanting on a mala.
