About Prayer Beads
Prayer beads are also called mala, japa beads, shoshu, juzu beads, or worry beads. In Catholicism, they are called rosary beads. Malas are commonly used by Tibetan, Hindu, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese Buddhist monks, Zen priests, or other believers. Authentic malas normally have 108 beads. The number, 108, has special meaning in Hinduism, meditation, and yoga. In Tibetan Buddhism, it represents the 108 volumes containing the words of the Buddha. In Tibetan belief, a set of genuine prayer beads is good for health, prosperity, and fertility.
