Here you will find a collection of Japamalas with 108 beads carefully selected for you.
HOW TO USE YOUR JAPAMALA:
Hold your japamala in your right hand (in India the left hand is considered impure) and, starting with the guide bead, use your thumb to “count” each mantra or prayer, always touching the bead during recitation. Then, lightly pull the bead towards you and move on to the next bead. Continue pulling the beads until you have done 108 repetitions. The guide bead should not be counted, it is only used to mark the beginning and end of the recitation.
According to Tibetan tradition, the mantra must be recited 108 times, every day, for 40 consecutive days. This will make your japamala impregnated with the energy of the mantra you chose.
