Every Mala uses 108 beads, incorporating the Hindu tradition of bead counting in meditation. The practice is to repeat the mantra 108 times, sliding a finger over each bead as the mantra is visualized or spoken. 108 represents the sum of the Zodiac planets, and is also the amount of Qi energy meridians found within the body.
