The number 108 is considered a sacred number in traditions such as Buddhism & Hinduism. Buddhist prayer beads or malas are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, counting prostrations, or the repetitions of a buddha's name.
Still used by many yogis today, malas are used to recite mantras while practicing meditation. Other people wear mala beads today as a symbol and reminder of their own journey, whatever it may be.
Wenge is a naturally dark and dense wood making these beads sturdy and durable, perfect for everyday wear.
Wenge is believed to increase one’s connection to the Earth by stimulating the base Chakra. It grants a sense of awareness, invokes tranquility and awakens divine thoughts within. Wenge also promotes a deeper relaxed state in the wearer, increasing spiritual energy. Finished with a Chinese eternal knot that brings luck.
