A modmala is a modern version of a traditional mala necklace. Malas have been used by Buddhists and Hindus for centuries as a guide during meditation. The 108 beads on the mala serve as a physical reminder of the number of times an intention, prayer or mantra is repeated.
*Meaningful Gift Idea* - String and knot the first bead on for your gift recipient while thinking of a wish or blessing for them. Write or video your wish or blessing for them, letting them know how special they are to you. They can then finish the modmala themselves filling it with a personal mantra, affirmation or prayer.
*Baby/Bridal Shower Idea* - Sit in a circle with all of your shower guests. Have each guest string a bead onto the modmala while saying a wish or blessing for you. You can finish the modmala filling it with a personal mantra, affirmation or prayer. You then have a beautiful reminder of all the love that surrounds you.
