Protect, Heal & Empower with Our Mala Beads

What are Malas?

Sacred Buddhist mala beads have been used for centuries by many spiritual traditions as a tool to help to calm the mind, center oneself and connect to the best that is within us. The word “Mala” means necklace or garland in Sanskrit, and refers to a strand or beads used for prayer. Modern beads are now used to repeat affirmations, or just to wear, healing art!

Design your own!

We also offer creative custom designs if you have a special creation in mind, and mala repairs when your beads breaks. Our mala prayer beads are crafted with love, using select, natural healing gemstones and quality mala woods, bodhi malas and rudraksha beads, and even genuine Swarovski Crystal. Get Creative, design one and we’ll bring your idea to life!

Our Promise.

Complimentary mala bags are offered, with purchase of one of our full mala necklaces, as well as a 30 day craftsmanship guarantee.

Our Testimonials

quoteRed Tiger’s Eye Mala

This is the second mala I have personally purchased from your store. First: I love it! My initial one broke and I took it as a sign to bring in new and fresh energy. This one is exactly what I need to help balance my professional, spiritual and personal lives. Second: The shipping was crazy fast! I am 3 states over and it arrived in 3 days. Compared to products I purchased online a few cities down which took 2 weeks to deliver. Third: The site is easy to navigate to find exactly what I needed. I will be purchasing all my future mala from this site and this site alone.

This was my second mala bead purchase from this site, and I am quite pleased with both. The stone quality is at least appropriate for the price, and the stringing seems very strong. Plus, they’re pretty. :)

This mala is as beautiful as the picture! This is great for furthering your practice or simply for daily attire. The adjustable knot allows the beads to hang loosely or tight, whichever you prefer. I would definitely order from buddhistmala.com again
