A mala or mala yapa is the union of 108 spherical beads, used in Hinduism to recite mantras or the names of a deity. In addition to the 108 accounts, it carries an extra larger account with a tuft of threads, which goes in the middle. Yapa means 'muttering prayers, repeating in a whispering tone passages from the sacred scriptures, enchantments, or names of a divinity', while mala is translated as 'garland'. You start at the largest account (1) and finish one round by the smallest (108). The mala is taken in the right hand with the thumb and ring fingers, and moves between that space with the middle finger; With each account the chosen mantra is repeated.
