WHY 108 BEADS?
What's interesting is that no matter who you ask, the answer is likely to be different each time.
But it is undeniable that the number 108 is very common in Mala, and its various different but special meanings are also accepted by many people.
So we summarize the following several mainstream interpretations of 108.
Through self-discovery of the journey of life to some extent, some people think that the journey of our human soul has 108 stages. We use Mala to pray for each stage of life.
Some people associate the possibility of enlightenment by taking only 108 deep breaths a day in meditation.
Some people think that 108 repetitions are a nice way to pray when you are meditating and reciting a mantra. We have a lot of Mala necklaces or bracelets made of 108 Mala beads that allow people to recite their mantra, which can be a voice or a string of words, all you need to do is repeat and pray, so some Malas have 216 (double), or 54 (half), which are related to 108.
One of the most popular explanations is that there are 108 beads on a Mala associated with the chakras (seven energy points in our body). It is said that there are 108 energy lines connected to the heart, one of which is considered to be the road to self-realization.
All in all, the meaning of the 108 beads on your Mala is explainable. We like it. The fact is, the number of beads is not unchangeable, as long as you like, you can do anything, you can choose any number of Mala as your partner, whether it is a necklace or a bracelet.
What we need to do with OasyMala here, is therefore very simple. We just need to determine what kind of Mala we are attracted to, and then connect with this Mala and pray.
