MANTRA MELA MĀLAS


21 BEAD MĀLAS

SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR LONG MANTRAS

Mantra japa is the practice of repeating a mantra as a form of yoga. Traditionally, short mantras of a single line are repeated 108 times. Although longer mantras are not normally used as part of a sustained mantra japa practice of 40 days or longer, there is no reason why they cannot be. Indeed, from personal experience, I have found that they can be especially rewarding, offering something more substantial to occupy busy, over-active minds. This in turn can allow us to become more deeply immersed in the practice.

However, 108 repetitions requires a large time commitment for the longer mantras and it is not necessary to do this amount. Taking our time to relish the longer mantras in a slow and savoury way without rushing, takes about 20 minutes, including a couple of minutes to bask in the silence at the end.

Using a māla is a simple and effective way to count repetitions. However, it is difficult to get hold of mālas with less than 27 beads. So, we designed the 21 bead māla, especially for participants of Mantra Mela workshops.

Recommended for these mantras:

  • Sāvitrī Gāyatrī
  • Auṁ Tryambakaṁ Yajāmahe
  • Pūrṇam Adaḥ
  • Asato Mā

However, they can be used for any mantra of your choice.
