Mala Prayer beads are similar to rosary beads (108 in number), used for repetitive prayer (japa), a common aid to worship in Hinduism and Buddhism. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This practice is known in Sanskrit as japa, when mantras are repeated hundreds or even thousands of times. The mala is used so that one can focus on the meaning or sound of the mantra rather than counting its repetitions. One repetition is usually said for each bead while turning the thumb clockwise around each bead (source)
