Mala beads have been held highly sacred in many traditions and cultures around the world, but originated from being known as Buddhist prayer beads. Each mala is gently hand crafted with sacred number of 108 beads (plus an additional "Guru" bead) used for devotional meditation, mantra and/or prayer. With each bead a mantra or prayer is repeated to meet a total of 108. This number has much significance, and also interpretation. Each of which, represents love and unity. A few of the most valued are listed below.
~In astrology, there are 12 houses and 9 planets. 12 times 9 equals 108.
~The metal silver is said to represent the moon. The atomic weight of silver is 108.
~ In relation to the chakras (the seven energy points in our body), it has been said there there are 108 energy lines connecting to the heart, with one of them believed to be the path to self realization.
~When using your mala beads in meditation and chanting your mantra, some have said you are complete once you have done it 100 times. The 8 extra beads are to account for errors. Or even more beautiful, are meant to be an offering to your guru.
