Before we speak generally about Mala beads breaking, I want to make sure our DharmaShop customers know that we do offer re-stringing of our malas, and if you feel your mala beads broke prematurely or were defective (handmade) we will definitely do our best to replace them for you!
That said, if mala beads break, it is generally seen as a sign that you have completed a cycle of growth and are ready to move on to the next stage in your spiritual journey. Some also believe it is a sign that you have let go of something that is no longer serving you.
If your mala breaks, it is important to take some time to reflect on what this means for you. It may be helpful to journal about your thoughts and feelings, or simply chalk it up to it serving it's time!
Once you have had some time to reflect, you can decide what to do with your broken mala. You can choose to repair it, to bury it, or to simply keep it as a reminder of your journey.
Ultimately, what happens if mala beads break is up to you. There is no right or wrong answer, and what matters most is that you honor the meaning that the mala has for you.
