A mala is a strand of beads, traditionally used for counting during mantra meditations. Malas can consist of 108 beads, 54 beads, 27 beads, 21 or 19 beads. Malas have been used since at least the 10th century as a meditation aid. They allow us to focus the mind on a single pointed task as we work through our meditation.  If you practice meditation and yoga, a mala can be a powerful tool in your quest for wellness and clearer understanding.

Dharmamomma Malas are created using semi precious natural stone beads with skull spacers as a reminder that nothing is permanent; change is a part of life.

Welcome to my online store. It is a work in progress, so please have patience as I “hammer out the bugs.”

I designed and created all of the Malas that you see here. Mala stringing has proven to be a relaxing and meditative process, and each Mala has a “personality” all its own.

Most of these Malas are strung using 6MM beads, but a few of them are created with 8MM beads. Refer to the Additional Information link located with the description of each mala, to verify the size of the stones.
