Japa Meditation is the spiritual discipline of repeating a mantra to help quiet the endless stream of thoughts flowing through our overactive minds, giving us the ability to step outside our problems, fears and depressions for a time. Repeating a mantra can help us arrive in the present moment. This is in turn helps one in the ability to cope with life's fluctuations. Each time we repeat the mantra with a meaning embedded into our hearts, we step closer to the peace and joy and an enlightened awareness leading to deeper connection to the source of Grace. Mala Beads support the counting of 108 Mantras.
