28 inch long Wooden mallah bead rosary made using 108 individual 8mm beads, made in Nepal.
The mallah (also known as Japa Mala or Mala) is a Buddhist rosary. Practitioners chant a mantra (usually "Om mani padme hum") for each of the beads, and they meditate whilst working their way through the beads. A complete circuit of the mallah means that the mantra has been said 108 times. By doing this the Buddhists belive that the invisible thread which links the person to the divine and their higher self is awakend. Mallah beads are similar in practice to a Catholic rosary and are used to aid meditation and prayer.
