Anatomy of Mala Beads
- Markers, also known as spacer beads, they function as checks to make sure the mind does not trail off during meditation or counting.
- Guru bead is the larger bead above the mala tassels. It symbolizes the learning the student has received through reciting the mantra and honors the relationship between the guru and student. It is not counted during repetitions. It is also a reminder to pause for a moment of reflection before carrying on another round of meditation.
