A mala is a string of 108 beads with one bead as the summit or head bead called a 'Sumeru. ' Malas are used as a tool to help the mind focus on meditation, or count mantras in sets of 108 repetitions.

Mala beads, from the Sanskrit “mala” meaning garland, are a string of beads that are traditionally used for prayer and meditative/mantric practices in and around the Indian subcontinent.

One of the most popular symbols is the Dharmachakra, or eight-spoked wheel, which represents the Buddha and Buddhism. 

Stupas, architectural mountain-shaped monuments, symbolize Buddha's enlightened mind, while footprints or the swastika symbolize his presence. 

Animals are also important symbols of Buddhism.
