This striking 108 bead mala is made from tulsi seed which has been strung with vibrant red string and knotted for easier counting. Natural turquoise nuggets have been fashion into spacer beads and a guru bead. Prayer beads are used for chanting a mantra in sets of 108 repetitions. Sit, with eyes closed and repeat the mantra as you pass each bead through your thumb and middle finger. When the mala becomes empowered with the mantra energy, it can be worn on the left wrist.
