What is a bracelet "Mâlâ"?
Mālā (japa mala or mālā, meaning garland) is a Buddhist or Hindu rosary used among others for the recitation of mantras. It is traditionally composed of 108 seeds or pearls of various kinds of wood, of sandalwood for example.
During your meditation, take your Mâlâ bracelet in your hands, and count the pearls one by one each time you recite your mantra. This will help you count the repetitions while staying present.
