Moolamala || Mala making in Kuala Lumpur

Pablo Neruda,
It is a private session of Mala making with Moolamala in Kuala Lumpur. Mala is a Buddhist prayer beads. It is used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, counting prostrations, or the repetitions of a Buddha's name. They are similar to other forms of prayer beads used in various world religions such as Rosary, Tasbih and such.

The conventional Buddhist tradition counts the beads at 108, signifying the mortal desires of mankind. The number is attributed to the Mokugenji Sutra wherein Shakyamuni Buddha instructed King Virudhaka to make such beads and recite the Three Jewels of Buddhism.

Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads; I made mine as a necklace solely thus I do not count the beads. Enjoy the picture after the jump!
