One of the oldest tools that meditators use throughout time and in different religions, from Hinduism, Buddhism to Christianity is some form of beads. Here we will focus primarily on eastern meditation beads called ”Mala”. Mala comes from the Sanskrit word for garland.
They are one of the basic tools when performing a mantra meditation. Touching every bead focuses your attention on the mantra itself. You don’ have to worry where you are with your mantra. The end of the beads will lead you to your end, bead per bead. Meditation with beads has shown to reduce respiration, calming both mind and spirit. The rhythmic breath and repeating of mantra have shown to arrange some of your brain ways in a specific way that favors many psychological and physical benefits.
