108 Chanting Mala Necklaces

Traditional and not-so-traditional 108 bead malas.  Prayer beads from India can be made from many different beads and many different styles, but they all have 108 beads for use in meditation and chanting.

Choose from malas made by the mala wallahs (sellers) of Vrindavan, or, to purchase with a purpose, select one handmade by our widows working at Mahima Creations.

Most of the malas in this collection are one of a kind - once they are gone, we will not be replacing them.

Seema demonstrates how to chant the Maha Mantra.  First, without a japa mala bag so you can see how she pulls each individual bead through her fingers as she chants.  And then, she puts the mala in a japa mala bag so you can see how to chant with the bag.  Many devotees walk the streets of Vrindavan with their right hand in their japa mala bags, chanting the Maha Mantra, usually completing up to 16 rounds a day.


Japa means repetition.  Also, it means rotation.  So when you do japa mala of any mantra, you are rotating your consciousness around that mantra, so that the consciousness gets "imprinted" by the vibrations of that mantra.
