Mala is a Sanskrit word meaning garland. Malas are a type of meditation beads or prayer beads and are ancient tools that were developed to keep the mind focused and clear from thoughts. A full mala contains 108 counting beads plus one guru or meru bead. Usually, long enough to wear as a necklace or wrapped around the wrist as a bracelet.
