Blessed Tibetan Malas including buddhist 108 beads malas, tibetan prayer bracelet,
Learn how to take care of your Mala?
Generally speaking , your mala will grow in spiritual significance as you use it for mantra recitations and bring it to teachings and possible have it blessed by your guru (your teacher in buddhism). Although it is not in itself as sacred as a statue or a piece of Buddhist scripture, it is something we usually treat with respect. This means that you wouldn’t put it on the floor or put mundane objects on top of it or throw it.
When not using the malas, Tibetans usually wrap them around their wrists or hang them around their necks (Although no one uses it for counting while around the neck.). When you don’t need it for a while, or are sleeping, for example, you can hang it on a clean, highish place, maybe near your altar, or collect it in a clean mala bag.�
