How to make your own mala
« on: February 15, 2010, 12:43:24 pm »
FYI, if you would like to do it yourself, these are a full instruction on how to make a Tibetan mala from start to finish.

How to Make a Mala Part 1 - Materials and Preparation

How to Make a Mala Part 2 - Beads and Spacers

How to Make a Mala Part 3 - Tying the Knots

How to Make a Mala Part 4 - The Tassel

How to Make a Mala Part 5 - Trim and Finish


If you would like to know how to make other kinds of malas, there are many resources we can start posting in this thread for those who are a bit tight on the wallet or who would rather personalize the process of making their own meditation tools.
