A strand of beads, mala, is used during mantra meditation, japa, to count the number of mantras chanted. For example, it is common for devotees of Krishna to chant the Hare Krishna mantra while fingering each bead, gradually progressing along the strand, completing one round of japa (108 mantras) in about 7-10 minutes. (Serious practitioners chant a fixed number of rounds of japa each day.) This strand consists of one hundred and eight beads made of wood that is scented with Sandalwood fragrance.

This strand of beads is about 18" long (or about 36" around). The length may vary due to the size of the beads. The beads are up to 0.3" in diameter. The beads in this style of japa mala are smooth, polished wood that is scented with sandalwood fragrance.
