EARTH HEALING is the name given to these 8mm black lava stone malas.
Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This sādhanā (practice) is known in Sanskrit as japa. In Tibetan Buddhism, malas of 108 beads are used, signifying the mortal desires of mankind.
