Malas are commonly used by Tibetan, Hindu, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese Buddhist monks, Zen priests, or believers. They normally have 108 beads plus the guru bead. The number, 108, is considered a sacred number in Hinduism, meditation, and yoga. In Tibetan Buddhism, it represents the 108 volumes containing the words of the Buddha. Tibetan malas sometimes have 111 beads.
