A mala is the most ancient form of a rosary, used to count the repetitions of a mantra, a prayer, as the spiritual self is trained. Each Japamala should only be used for repetitions of one particular mantra
The use of a Mala generates various types of vibration in the wearer depending on the type of bead used.
There is a definite way to use a Mala. It is put on the middles finger of the right hand and with the help of the thumb each bead is pulled toward the body. The friction causes the vibration.
