Mala - Red Tiger Eye and Carnelian made with the traditional 108 beads
A mala, meaning garland in Sanskrit, evokes a circular, continuous form.
In practice, a mala is the devoted offering of repeated cycles (typically in divisors of 108) of mantra japa or yoga asana.
Within a mala, there is always a sense of beginning, continuing and completion. Both inside each individual cycle and in the practice as a whole.
This three-form quality allows us to embody, in practice, the rhythmic cycles ever-present in the natural universe: creation (srishti), sustaining (sthiti) and destruction (samhara)
