What are Mala Beads?

A mala is a simple string of beads used in meditation to count mantras, prayers, or intentions. They can also be used to count breaths or used in a gratitude meditation. Mala is a Sanskrit word meaning garland or rosary and is an ancient tool developed to keep the mind focused and clear from thoughts.
A full mala contains 108 counting beads plus one guru bead. The numbers 1, 0, and 8: Some say that one stands for God or higher Truth, zero stands for emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice, and eight stands for infinity or eternity.

"Life is a balance of holding on and letting go."
