Learn to make your own mala with jewelry designer, Emma O'Neill!
A mala is a string of 108 beads with one bead as the summit or head bead called a ‘sumeru’. Malas are used as a tool to help the mind focus on meditation, or count mantras in sets of 108 repetitions.
The 109th bead on a mala is called the sumeru, bindu, stupa, or guru bead. Counting should always begin with a bead next to the sumeru. In the Hindu, Vedic tradition, if more than one mala of repetitions is to be done, one changes directions when reaching the sumeru rather than crossing it.
- 27 Constellations x 4 Padas (parts) = 108
- 12 Zodiac Houses x 9 Planets = 108
- Upanishads or the Scriptures of the Vedas = 108
Join me on the New Moon - Saturday, November 18th at Be Moved Yoga in Brantford, Ontario from 12-3pm. We will begin with a short meditation & blessing before starting to create our malas. Each participant will leave with their very own mala made with wood & specifically chosen crystals of your choice!
