Have to say these are the nicest wrist malas I’ve ever seen. Doesn’t their gorgeousness rip open your heart? You could use one to lovingly count mantras during your meditation practice. And while specific Eastern mantras are recommended for each mala, I say these sacred beads are multi-faith. If you fit your prayers to them, you’ll do fine!
This site advises you to keep your mala in a sacred place, and not strut it around town. (So the spiritually materialistic part of each one of us, the part that loves to show off our cool, spiritual stuff, must be restrained. Whaaa.) Here’s a beautiful selection of mala bags for careful, conscientious mala storage.
