Mala Beads Meaning and Purpose

What are Mala Beads?

Mala beads are traditionally used in meditation and prayer. Although it is what they are designed for, you do not have to meditate on the beads. They can be worn as beautiful jewelry as a reminder of set intentions, to heal and calm the mind, body and spirit.


How do you use Mala Beads?

When used in meditation, you recite (verbally or mentally) your mantra on each bead. Although there are many theories behind the reason of 108 beads, here is one that I have learned and love:

1 stands for God, the universe or your own highest truth

0 stands for emptiness and humility in spiritual practice

8 stands for infinity and timelessness

In addition to the 108 beads, there is a guru bead or a tassel. which represents enlightenment. 


All our of pieces are handmade with genuine gemstones. Gemstones are believed to offer different healing qualities. For example, rose quartz is believed to open the heart chakra, lava is thought to encourage strength and clarity, and amazonite is associated with helping us follow our dreams.

Some of our malas are made with Lava Rock diffuser beads, which can diffuse essential oil. Simply put a drop of essential oil on the diffuser beads and enjoy all day long, wherever you go.
