Mala Beads - Buddhist Prayer Beads - 108 Bead Sandalwood

A Mala is usually made up of 108 beads, although other numbers are also used. In addition there is often a 109th bead (sometimes of a distinctive colour or size) and/or tassle of varying types.

Often there are additional beads which may be decorative or used for counting rounds. Malas are typically used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity/god.
