A mala (Punjabi: ਮਾਲਾ ) is simply a string of beads that are used in meditation practice, religion or inner calm around the world. Malas are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, counting prostrations or the name or names of the Lord, such as Waheguru or Satnam.
This practice is known in Sanskrit as "japp" and Sikhs refer to it as "Naam Jaapna". In Sikhism, the mala may also be used for keeping count of the number of repetitions of Shabads or to aid in concentration, or for general meditation, etc.
It is great for mantra chanting, yoga, and zen meditation practices.
The beads are a great meditation accomplice, to use them whilst meditating hold a bead between your middle finger and thumb on your right hand whilst reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra whilst moving from bead to bead.
Since the beads are fingered in an automatic manner, they allow the user to keep track of how many prayers have been said with a minimal amount of conscious effort, which in turn allows greater attention to be paid to the prayers themselves.
