How many beads on a meditation necklace?

Meditation or mala necklaces usually have 108 beads, although some may have 54 or 27 beads. The number 108 is considered sacred in Hinduism and Buddhism and represents the number of human desires one must overcome to reach enlightenment. The number is also associated with the cycles of the moon and the sun and various other spiritual and cultural beliefs.

Each bead on a meditation necklace is used to count a mantra or a specific intention during meditation. The necklace usually has a tassel or a charm at the end, representing the connection between the physical and spiritual realms. The necklace is traditionally held in the right hand and passed through the fingers, starting at the first bead after the guru bead, which marks the beginning and end of the meditation.

Meditation necklaces are made from various materials, including gemstones, wood, seeds, bone, and crystal. Each material is believed to have unique energy and healing properties and can be chosen based on the individual’s intention for meditation. For example, amethyst promotes calmness and clarity, while rose quartz is believed to enhance feelings of love and compassion.
