Our Tibetan friend Yeko using a Tibetan Bodhi Seed Mala

A Mala is used for "counting" out mantras.

Traditionally, you repeat your chosen mantra, either out loud or silently, and count one bead at a time until you get to the Guru bead (the one at the top that has the thread coming out of it). When you reach the Guru bead, pause for a moment and reflect on your Guru and the intention of your mala practice, then turn the mala around and repeat the process counting back the other way. In this way you do not cross over the Guru bead.


When not being used to count mantras, Tibetans traditionally wear their mala around their neck or around their left wrist.
