History of the 108 Mala Necklace:
Mala Necklaces have been around for over 3000 years with roots in Buddhism, Hinduism and yoga. The term ‘Mala’ is a Sanskrit word for “mediation garland”. The word Bead comes from the Anglo-Saxon term “bebe” meaning “prayer” or “to pray”. The tassel is a representation of the lotus flower, a symbol of the higher consciousness. The significance of 108 beads difference between practices is still known as a scared number. In Hinduism, the 108 represents units of the distance between our body and the God within us. According to the yogic practice there are 108 sacred life force points in the body (the meridian system). In Buddhism, there are 108 human passions that impede enlightenment, 36 related to the past, 36 to the present, 36 to the future. 108 can even find meaning within astrology. No matter your practice it’s quite clear that a Mala is a very spiritual and an excellent tool in finding a deeper connection with oneself, God, or the universe.
