What are mala beads?

Malas are those necklaces yogis wear that look similar to rosary beads but malas are more than a fashion statement. A variety of religions use malas for meditation and prayer. When held in the hand, malas can help guide attention to mantra or breathing as each bead equals one repetition. Most malas have a marker, a tassel or guru bead, where you start and end so you can tell when you've completed the circle, even with your eyes closed.
