Similar to rosaries in Judeo-Christian traditions, japa malas act as a tool in meditation to maintain focus as well as having a tactile movement as you go through your mindful practice. I used a japa mala when I first began my meditation practice, and it is a great tool to use for mantra.
In this video, I explain the japa mala and how to use them in meditation. Please like, share, comment and let me know what you think! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
