Using a Meditation Mala

What is a Meditation Mala ??

A mala is a string of 108 beads with one bead as the summit bead call a 'sumeru'.


A mala is a tool used to keep your mind on the meditation practice. Malas are generally made from different materials such as tulsi wood, sandalwood, rudraksh seeds or crystals. Each type of material has certain properties which subtly affect the subconscious mind.

The mala beads are moved in rhythm with the breath and the mantra or affirmation.

The mala may be worn after it has been 'charged'.


Join us for this informative and free workshop about using a Mala. The use of a Mala will be discussed .... How, Why, What .... and we will do a Mala Meditation. Bring your Mala or they will be available at the New Earth Center.
