It promotes loyalty to the self and to the ultimate experience of life. Mala bead bracelets are used in both meditation and prayer. Like a rosary, each bead represents a mantra or prayer. Smooth to the touch, Mala beads help you to remain focus by being a tactile reminder of what you are meant to be doing; meditating or praying.
