Yesterday I got this beautiful Mala from Mysore, Khun Naw, yoga teacher and assisting yoga teacher to Khun Boonchu, just brought them back from Mysore, India.
They are made out of sandalwood so they even smell beautifully.
For those who don’t know, mala is: Japa mala or mala (Sanskrit:माला; mālā, meaning garland) is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists,
usually made from 108 beads, though other numbers are also used. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This practice is known in Sanskrit as japa.
