Most Mala designs consist of a large bead at the end called the "Guru" or "Bindu" bead. This bead confirms the end of one round in the prayer cycle. On a traditional Mala the Guru bead is the 109th bead. The Guru bead is typically adorned with a tassel, which represents enlightenment. Whether or not you want to create a traditional or whimsical Mala style design, the Guru bead is the perfect piece to give you a seamless finished look. We suggest using 1mm C-lon to string these beads. To see the vast variance in color and pattern please view the additional image.
