108 Bead Japa Mala or Mala Necklace (Meditation Beads)

Mala beads can be worn and/or used for meditation. A mala is a string of 108 beads with one bead as the summit bead called a ‘sumeru’ or ‘guru bead’. When used for meditation a mala can aid in focusing by helping to keep the mind from wondering and helping to keep one from falling asleep. A Japa Mala is a mala that is used for counting mantras. It is important that if a mala is used to count mantras, the mantra be remembered with sincerity, devotion, feeling and full attention. There are many, many reasons (some say there are 108 different reasons) as to why there are 108 beads. Here are a few of my favorite:

-In traditional Buddhist thought, people are said to have 108 afflictions or klesas. There are six senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and consciousness) multiplied by three reactions (positive, negative, or indifference) making 18 "feelings." Each of these feelings can be either "attached to pleasure or detached from pleasure" making 36 "passions", each of which may be manifested in the past, present, or future. All the combinations of all these things makes a total of 108, which are represented by the beads in the ojuzu.
-There are said to be 108 earthly desires in mortals.
-There are said to be 108 lies that humans tell.
-There are said to be 108 human delusions or forms of ignorance.
-The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth. The distance from the Sun to the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Sun.
-The average distance of the Moon from the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Moon.
-Some say there are 108 styles of meditation.

How to use:

The mala is traditionally held in the right hand and used in two ways -

In one method, the mala is hanging between the thumb and the ring (third) finger. The middle (second) finger is used to rotate the mala by one bead towards oneself with each repetition of the mantra.

In the other method, the mala is hanging on the middle finger, with the thumb used to rotate the mala just as explained - one bead at a time.

Either way, the index finger is never used to touch the mala.

The mala may coil on the floor with the hand resting on the right knee or used with the hand concealed in the mala bag.

The practice begins at the sumeru (guru) bead and continues around the loop until the summit is reached again. The summit bead is never passed over. If you choose to do more than 1 round, the mala is turned around to proceed again in the reverse direction.

By using a mala for meditation, whenever the mala is taken up, it automatically conditions the mind to the meditative state. The mala that you use for Mantra Japa meditation should not be exhibited and is best kept privately in a special mala bag.
 
Our malas, bracelets and jewelry pieces are aesthetically beautiful, but this is the secondary reason to wear them. The primary purpose of wearing our jewelry is because they are made of high-quality gemstones. These stones and crystals were formed over the course of billions of years thus absorbing energy from the earth and sun. Thus when worn close to the skin, these beneficial energies are not only transferred to the wearer but they also help to transform negative energy the wearer may be exposed to or encounter. Therefore we do NOT use plastic or glass beads in our jewelry pieces as they may look nice (at times) but don’t have any significant benefit to the wearer. Know that when purchasing jewelry with Concept YOUtopia, you are receiving beautiful jewelry with a beneficial purpose!
