This set of purple Czech glass mala counter beads makes an easy and beautiful addition to your mala prayer beads. Clear glass finishes one side; dark purple glass ends the other. Count up to 10,000 mantras on one set—one side counts hundreds and the other counts thousands.

HOW AND WHY:

These are a traditional Buddhist tool for "accumulating" or counting many mantras.
They attach on each side of the mala prayer beads. (Easy to do at home by making a loop around your mala and pulling one end of the counter bead strand through the loop.)
After you repeat a prayer or mantra all the way around your mala you can pull down one counter bead to show 100 mantras. After you've done this ten times, you'll have pulled down ten counter beads. That equals a thousand, so you can then pull down a counter bead on the other strand. Then start over on the tens side. In this way you can count many, many prayers or mantras over the course of days, months, and even years.

Traditional for some students of Tibetan Buddhism who are working on the "Ngondro", a set of preliminary practices given by a teacher.

Available in many colors! Contact me for a custom set.

6mm glass saucer beads with a 6mm round bead on one side and a vertical saucer bead on the other. 2 1/2 inches long (6.35 cm).
