The Mala is a rosary containing 108 beads. It is used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or name/s of a particular deity, a practice known in Sanskrit as Japa.
Tradition holds that the correct way to use a mala is with the right hand, with the thumb flicking one bead to the next, and with the mala draped over the middle finger. The index finger represents ego, the greatest impediment to Self-Realization, so it is considered best avoided (as with the ego) when chanting on a mala.
You can also use the mala bead to tune into the essential vibration of a particular mantra moment to moment and breath to breath as a focus for meditation. Allow the energy of this ancient sound formula to bathe every cell of the body. Then sit silently for a few minutes, feeling the vibrations fade into deep inner peace.
