The buddhist rosary, Mala, is used for counting the number of times the Mantra is recited.
This is a 108 beads wrist mala, if you count the numbers there are actually 109 beads including the center Guru bead. The Guru bead symbolizes the Guru from whom one has received the mantra being recited. The 108 beads represented the 108 earthly desires; the 6 senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and consciousness) multiplied by 3 reactions (positive, negative, or indifference) making 18 “feelings.” Each of these feelings can be either “attached to pleasure or detached from pleasure” making 36 “passions”, each of which may be manifested in the past, present, or future.
