Tibetan Red 8mm Wood Dyed Howlite Prayer Beads, Mala
These Tibetan mala beads, or prayer beads, are an important tool in meditation, and can be worn or carried as a Buddhist prayer beads bracelet or necklace. This mala is made of 8mm red wooden beads. Traditionally, a Buddhist mala has 108 beads, such as this one, plus three small counting beads and 6 beads for rotations around the mala on the tassel. This prayer bead necklace is 32 inches long and has accent beads of Dyed Howlite turquoise (not natural turquoise stone). In Buddhist rituals, the mala is held in one hand while meditating and the mantra is repeated as your fingers pass over each bead. Prayer beads are popular in many other religions as well; for example, Hindu prayer beads also have 108 beads on a japa mala. These prayer beads were handmade in Nepal.
