Mala Beads- Amethyst

The term 'mala' is a Sanskrit word for “meditation garland.” Originally, mala beads were used for a special style of meditation called Japa, which means, “to recite.”  Malas usually have 108 beads, and are used as a tool to help the mind focus on meditation, to chant the names of God or count mantras in sets of 108 repetitions. It’s the same thing as prayer beads, or a rosary. 

It's fine to wear your mala beads. While you are out, doing your daily chores or ready for a meditation. While meditating, people most often wrap them around the wrist, or wear them like a necklace.
