The mala, more commonly known as prayer beads, is a simple and ancient tool that joins two seemingly separate parts of our humanity:...our minds, which are often busy, worried or distracted, and ...our hearts, or innermost natures, which naturally seek spiritual focus and awareness.
mala: A string of beads used to facilitate a state of concentration while repeating a mantra. Aides concentration.
The mala should be held with the left hand, and you start your recitation at the first bead after the guru bead. The Mani Mantra is the Sanskrit mantra of Avolokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. It is as follows: OM MANI PADME HUM, which literally translates as "Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus." It transliterates to: ohm manee padmae hoom. It is considered to be the sacred six syllables.
