Guru beads are traditionally part of mala jewelry, which is used with a prayer or mantra to meditate. Almost all malas feature a guru bead at the center of the design. It signifies the end of one round in the prayer circle.
On a full-sized mala with 108 beads, the guru bead is the 109th bead. Its unique three-hole design makes it easy to create a continuous piece of jewelry without the need of a clasp. A smaller tower bead is included with each guru bead. Find them in different gemstone types right here!
