A simple and elegant set of our best-selling wooden mallah beads in a lovely Himalayan lokta paper box complete with an information card about the item. The mallah (also known as Japa Mala or Mala) is a kind of Buddhist rosary. Usually practitioners will work their way through the beads, reciting a mantra for each one, typically the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra. A complete circuit of the mallah means that the mantra has been said 108 times. By doing this the Buddhists believe that the invisible thread which links the person to the divine and their higher self is awakened. The beads are made from the wood of the Uttis tree, also known as the Nepalese Alder.
Please note that whilst most mallah have 108 beads, sometimes this number can vary as more beads are occasionally added in case the practitioner skips some beads by mistake.
