A mala necklace is a string of beads that are used in meditation practice as a tool to help count mantras and are made of many materials with a main focus on the Guru Bead and tassel; it can be simple to elaborate in design and has become a widely used piece of fashion. The 100 beads represent the number of times a mantra is repeated during your meditation. The eight specialty beads are for sending you mantra out into the world at large. The Guru Bead is said to symbolize the relationship between teacher and student; and the tassel signifies that as the strings come together so does our connection to the divine and to each other.
