Meditation is something we should all make time for each day. But, meditating can be very difficult in the beginning stages. Our minds tend to wander off. This can be frustrating and prevent us from practicing as much as we should be.
The mala is a useful tool for focusing your mind. While meditating if your energy is too low, you may fall asleep. If your energy is too high your mind will wander. A mala provides the perfect rhythm for your meditation, so practice a few different times a day and see what is most comfortable for you.
A mantra is a very important part of the meditation practice and also for your mala beads. You need to find a mantra that suits you and that you are comfortable with.
Your mantra can either be given to you by your teacher or you can choose one by yourself. If you are choosing your mantra yourself be certain about your intent. Try a few mantras for a few repetitions and see how they feel. Choose the mantra that feels most comfortable for you.
