The number 108 is considered a sacred number in Hinduism, Buddhism, and yogic tradition. Malas or Japa beads come in a string of 108 and are used for devotional meditation, mantra, and prayer. With each bead a mantra or prayer is repeated to meet a total of 108.


Hold your mala in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the guru bead (the larger bead opposite the tassel), use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra. Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again reach the guru bead.


Your mantra can be as simple as the word love, something you are thankful for, or a Sanskrit phrase such as “om shanti, shanti, shanti” which represents all encompassing peace.


A stone of protection, Tiger's Eye may also bring good luck to the wearer. It has the power to focus the mind, promoting mental clarity, helping us to resolve problems objectively and unclouded by emotions. Tiger's Eye represents the power, courage, and fearlessness of the tiger, worshipped throughout history and across the world. This stone is connected to the Manipura chakra, the third chakra situated near the solar plexus. This energy center governs personal power and self-confidence. Tiger's Eye stones will assist in clearing imbalances within Manipura Chakra.
