Bianstone 8mm 108 Prayer Mala Round Beads
In the realm of spiritual practice, the 108 prayer beads hold a sacred significance, serving as a tangible conduit for meditation and devotion. These beads, often referred to as mala or japa mala, are used in various religious traditions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism, as well as in some forms of yoga and mindfulness practices.

The number 108 is considered auspicious and holds deep symbolic meaning across different cultures and philosophies. In Vedic tradition, there are said to be 108 sacred texts called Upanishads, which form the basis of Hindu spirituality. In Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, it is believed that there are 108 marmas, or vital points, in the human body. In numerology, the number 1 signifies the unity of existence, 0 represents the void or emptiness from which all creation arises, and 8 symbolizes infinity or eternity.

When using a set of 108 prayer beads, practitioners often recite mantras or affirmations, each repetition passing through one bead. The process helps to focus the mind, calm the spirit, and deepen one's connection with the divine or higher self. The mala is typically held in the hand, with fingers moving along the beads one by one, creating a rhythmic and meditative practice.

The string of beads consists of several components:

Guru Bead: This is the 109th bead, which is not counted in the 108 repetitions. It serves as a reminder of the teacher or guru who guides the practitioner on their spiritual path. When one reaches the guru bead during meditation, it is customary to pause, offer gratitude, and either reverse the direction of the mala or kiss the guru bead before continuing.

Meru: The meru, or mountain, is the tassel or knot attached to the guru bead. It symbolizes the axis mundi, the cosmic mountain at the center of the universe, connecting heaven and earth.

Counter Beads: Some malas have additional beads, such as a counter bead or a set of smaller beads between the main strand and the guru bead, which can be used to count multiples of 108 repetitions.

Strand: The strand itself represents the continuity of life and the interconnectedness of all beings.

The materials used to make the 8mm round beads is natural bianstone. Each bianstone round beads carry its own symbolism and healing properties, enhancing the spiritual and health experience for the user.
