Welcome to PerfectZen's hand-crafted mala shop!

I personally create each mala necklace, using genuine stones, hand-tying to
infuse intention into each knot of my creations. The tassel at the end is also
made by hand. Gemstones carry unique healing properties, and each of my malas
carries the energy of each stone. Mala necklaces can be worn around the neck,
doubled to be worn shorter (if long enough to do so), or wrapped around the

A mala is a string of 108 beads as well as a Guru bead at the head. Mala beads
are not just accessories, though. Yes, they make beautiful necklaces &
bracelets, but they are so much more than that! First and foremost, they are a
tool used to count your mantras during meditation. Second, they are a wonderful
way to wear your intention all day long as a constant reminder of the thing you
are working towards.

There are so many explanations out there for the mysterious number 108. Here
are a few of my personal favorite explanations as to why 108 is the standard:
• 9 & 12: The numbers 9 & 12 are considered by many to be very sacred numbers,
and 9 x 12 = 108.
• Earthly Desires: There are said to be 108 earthly desires in mortals.
• The Heart Chakra: The chakras are intersections of energy lines and there
are said to be 108 energy lines converging to form the heart chakra.
• Time & Feelings: Some say that there are 108 feelings, with 36 being related
to the past, 36 to the present, and 36 to the future.
• 8 Extra Beads: 100 mantra recitations are counted as completed, while the
remaining 8 are there to give room for errors & omissions. The 8 are also said
to be an offering to God or Guru.
• The Numbers Themselves: The numbers 1, 0, and 8 also have their own specific
meanings. 1 for God or Higher Truth, 0 for emptiness or completeness in
spiritual practice, and 8 for infinity or eternity.

I’m a huge proponent of the theory that there is no right or wrong way to
choose a mala. Whichever mala that you are initially drawn to is usually the
one that is meant for you. To further focus your intention, you can choose a
mala that represents certain things.

Different gemstones can also have different meanings. Amethyst, for example,
promotes protection, purification, and spirituality. Turquoise encourages
communication, release, and healing. Jasper helps with balance and creativity.
There are so many different gemstones with so many different meanings. You are
sure to find a mala that is perfect for the intention you wish to set in your

Getting a mala blessed by a qualified master (lama) is wonderful, if you have
the chance. For most of us though, that is not always an option. My work-around
to this is to simply offer your mala up in prayer to God or to your Higher
Truth in a blessing ritual. I simply cup the mala in my hands and hold it up
over sage or juniper smoke while reciting an offering prayer. This doesn’t have
to be anything fancy, just a simple offering and a request to bless your mala
for good intentions will do the trick.

When you receive your mala, you will notice that there is a 109th bead at the
head, usually called a Guru bead. This bead is not counted during your
recitations, and should never be passed over during meditation. The Guru bead
is said to harness all of the energy of your practice.

Start at the bead next to it (either side is fine) and begin your mantra. For
every mantra repetition, you should hold the bead between your thumb and middle
finger, gently spinning the bead as you recite your mantra. Then simply move on
to the next bead. Work your way around your mala in this fashion until you
reach the Guru bead. You will have now recited your mantra 108 times. If you
wish to continue, simply turn back in the opposite direction and repeat the

You will find that some malas come with spacer beads (usually after every 27th
bead). These spacer beads are meant as an easy way to mark your place and
re-focus your mind when it starts to wander. Usually, these spacer beads are
not counted as a mantra bead. It is a good idea to be sure though before you
begin using your mala so that you know you are counting correctly.

Also known as mantra meditation, japa meditation involves the recitation of a
mantra. This mantra can be recited softly, or quietly in your own mind. It is a
great technique for bringing your mind to focus on a single point of
concentration. By repeating your mantra over and over, you bring focus to your
intention, and are better able to absorb its meaning.

Choosing a mantra to recite during japa meditation is a very personal choice
and process. There are several traditional mantras out there, and they each
have their own specific meaning and intention. “Om” being the most popular of
them all. I, however, have always found that reciting a modern mantra (in
English) helps me to focus on and really absorb the intention that I am setting
for myself that day, week, or month. Here are some examples of modern
meditation mantras:
• Where I am right now is exactly where I need to be.
• I have a purpose in this life.
• I surround myself by those who make me better.
• I am a magnet for joy, love, and abundance.
• Money flows easily and effortlessly to me.
• I am enough.
• Every day in every way, I’m getting better and better.
• I change my thoughts, I change my world.
• I am at peace with what is, what was, and what will be. I forgive you. I
forgive me.
• I am open to the abundance of the universe.

The history and tradition of mala beads views the breaking of a mala as a
positive, rather than a negative. It symbolizes a breakthrough in your
practice, a sign of progression. If your mala breaks, think of what
breakthroughs you have experienced. This may be a sign that the intention you
have been focusing on has come to fruition and it’s time to set a new one.
Malas can be re-strung if you so desire, and blessed all over again with a new
intention set to them. I will happily restring a broken mala for you that you
have purchased by me without charge, apart from any shipping charges.
