Buddhist prayer beads or malas ("Buddhist Rosary") are used in Buddhism to count the number of times a mantra is recited, the number of breaths one takes while meditating or the number of repetitions of a Buddha's name. There are equivalents of these prayer beads in other world religions. The prayer bracelet is made up of dark wood 10 mm (0.4 inch) mala beads strung together on a flexible black cord. Each Buddha prayer bracelet is adorned with a small 15 mm (0.6 inch) I Ching coin replica, believed to bring wealth and prosperity according to Feng Shui. This bracelet will comfortably fit most men and women, with wrist sizes 18 to 20 cm (7 to 8 inch).
