Prayer beads, also known as rosaries or mala beads, are a tool used in various religious and spiritual practices to aid in prayer, meditation, or mindfulness. They typically consist of a string of beads, often with a central or larger bead known as the "guru" bead, and smaller beads arranged in groups. Practitioners use the beads to keep track of the number of prayers, mantras, or affirmations they recite, as each bead is passed through the fingers during the practice. The repetitive motion of moving the beads and focusing on the prayers or mantras can help facilitate concentration, calm the mind, and deepen one's spiritual connection. Different traditions and cultures have their own styles of prayer beads, each with its own significance and ususage.
