  • Choose a comfortable and quiet space for meditation. Sit in a comfortable position, either on a cushion or a chair.
  • Take the prayer beads in your right hand and hold them between your middle finger and thumb.
  • Start with the bead next to the guru bead (the larger bead at the end of the mala) and recite your chosen mantra or prayer as you slide the bead between your fingers.
  • When you finish reciting the mantra, move to the next bead and repeat the process until you have completed an entire cycle of 108 beads.
  • Once you reach the guru bead again, you can end your meditation or turn the mala around and begin another round in the opposite direction.
  • Some people prefer to set an intention or focus for their meditation before using the prayer beads. This can help bring more meaning and purpose to the practice.
  • It’s essential to handle the prayer beads with care and respect. Keep them safe when not in use and avoid touching them with the left hand, which is considered impure in some traditions.
