You will receive one string of counter beads made out of the sacred tulsi plant. The counter bead is used to count how many rounds in your mala you have completed. during your daily mantra meditation practice. As you complete a round of reciting 108 times the sacred mantras, all you need to do is to move up or down one of the tulsi beads. Our counter beads have 20 beads. Tulsi wood is a very sacred plant associated with Lord Krishna and as such it is said to help with our spirituality. In the video I am showing how to use the tulsi counter beads once you complete a round. Our counter beads have 20 beads. They have a long string to be strung in your japa bag.
