A Mala is very important while chanting because it holds the power of the Mantras that you chant. Read further to know more…

Mala is the tool which holds the energy that you create while chanting Holy Mantras. It is one of the ways to connect with God and attain mental peace as well as contentment. Let’s first start with knowing the power of Mala, the holy beaded garland.

Mala: A Source To Attain Tranquility

Mala means, "Rosary" or "Garland." A more direct translation is "heavenly garland." A Mala is a garland made of beads or you can also describe it as strand of beads. Since long, malas are in use for meditation, offering prayers and chanting mantras. As per the Hindu customs, a Mala should be held in the right hand. It is wrapped in the middle finger and the thumb flicks the bead one by one. Calmness is felt when the beads pass over the ring finger while chanting Mantras. 

Significance of 108 Beads

Generally, a Mala consists of 108 beads. This number ‘108’ has multiple meanings. Some of them are as follows: 

  • 12 zodiac houses x 9 planets = 108
  • 27 constellations x 4 padas (parts) = 108
  • Upanishads Scriptures of the Vedas = 108

Therefore, we can say that 108 beads represent the whole universe. 

109th Bead of Mala, The Guru

The additional 109th bead knotted to the Mala is known as Sumeru, Guru bead or Meru bead, to name a few. This 109th bead is never crossed while chanting the Mantras, to show respect to the Guru. Instead, it is turned around to begin the next round.
