Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a quote or the name or names of a deity. In Tibetan Buddhism, traditionally Malas of 108 beads are used. Doing one 108-bead mala counts as 100 recitations, the extra repetitions are done to amend any mistakes in pronunciation or other faults of recitation.
