What is a Mala: Mala Beads have been worn for thousands of years in the traditions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Yoga. They are worn for their spiritual and healing qualities as well as a tool for certain types of meditation. The purpose of a Mala depends on the wearer's needs and when worn by intuitive prescription based on the type(s) of stone, it is a powerful amplifier of mental, physical and/or spiritual needs.
Mala is a Sanskrit word, meaning garland. Our Malas are made with 108 rudraksha beads and/or semi-precious gemstones along with an additional bead known as a guru bead, the 109th bead of the string. Guru beads are powerfully sacred pieces that signify both the relationship of student and guru as well as a realization of the universal self.
WHY 108 and #'s divisible by 108?
108 is a sacred and spiritual number. The number shows up in many ancient wisdom paths. The ancient text that many yogis study is called the Upanishads which has 108 chapters. There are 27 constellations by 4 parts which is 108. The 12 zodiac signs by 9 planets is also 108. The Ganges river also is known to have 108 names and it is said that there are 108 energy lines converging to form the Heart Chakra.
In Buddhism 108 is said to represent the following formula: 6 x 3 x 2 x 3 = 108
- 6 senses of a human being: sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, thought
- 3 times: past, present, future
- 2 conditions of heart, mind or intention: pure or impure
3 emotional states or "kleshia": like, dislike, indifference

Back to The Heart
Malas or prayer beads are traditionally used as a tool during prayer and meditation. They are made up of 108 beads, which is a sacred number, that holds vast spiritual significance. The 108 beads are completed by a guru bead and sometimes a tassel.
Malas have gained great popularity in both the yoga and reiki communities. The 108 beads are used as a guide to count mantras or affirmations during meditation and to assist one in remaining focused and clear of mind. The guru bead is placed at the end of the 108 beads as a reminder to give thanks and also represents the student-guru relationship. The tassel, many strands uniting as one, represents ones connection to the divine and all humanity; our oneness. It is also said that the tassel represents enlightenment.
Malas are traditionally created using one overhand knot in between each bead to create security and ideal spacing between beads. Modern Malas often use delicate spacer beads instead of overhand knots to create this same ideal spacing.
Anjali creates three different sized Malas.
All have the sacred 108 beads, a guru bead/stone, and sometimes include a tassel. Each Mala has been crafted using an intentioned combination of healing stones in order to provide unique and specific assistance and support in meditation and daily life.
The variation in length is accomplished by utilizing different sized beads; Mini Malas use primarily 4-6mm beads, petite Malas utilize primarily 6mm beads, and full Malas primarily 8mm beads.
Additional Mala Styles Include the Pocket Mala and The Mala Bracelet
Anjali’s Pocket Mala design is perfect for those who don’t wear necklaces or bracelets but still have a desire for a meditation tool and daily support.
This design consists of 18, 8mm gemstone beads, completed with an intentioned guru stone.
Anjali has three different styles of Mala Bracelets. We offer a 36 bead wrap stretch bracelet, an 18 bead single stretch bracelet, and an 18 bead adjustable cord.
Each variation of bracelet and pocket Malas represent the same sacred significance that the 108 bead Malas have. Because 108 can be divided by both 18 and 36 the bracelets and pocket Malas can be used in that same fashion as a traditional Mala.
