Tibetan bone carved Mala beads

Mala,the Mala is very common among most Tibetans, used to focus ones’ mind on the recitation of mantras. A full-length Tibetan mala is usually comprised of 108 plus a guru bead. The reason for this is simply that the easiest manner in which to count mantras is in groups of 100. The 8 extra beads are to compensate for any counting errors or omissions during mantra repetition, as well as to provide extra beads should any get lost if the mala string breaks.
These beads can be used for divination purposes. There are a few variations of divination using mala beads. Visualise your question and seize the tenwa in both hands. Count off the beads by threes moving towards each hand. You will be left with either one, two or three beads. The procedure is repeated once more.
