Mala is the an ancient Sanskrit word for the prayer beads that are used for counting mantra recitations.
Malas are used in Tibetan Buddhist communities all over the world and are wrapped around wrists or dangling from fingers accompanying the recitations of sacred mantras.
Since a very common part of the Tibetan Buddhist practice is to repeat mantras either mentally or aloud hundreds or even thousands of times, these beads act as a rosary for helping to count off the number of prayers, like a spiritual abacus.
Even if you are not actively counting, the repeated recitation of the mantra while going bead by bead through the mala helps to focus and calm the mind.
