This red japa mala (rosary) of 108 prayer beads is indispensable to meditation. Each bead is used to count the repetition of a mantra or chant.

The largest bead - at which point the worshiper commences his chant - is the Guru bead with a tassel, a symbol of the teacher-student bond. Handmade in Nepal.
