- Handmade in Nepal of antiqued brass, these mala clip counters feature a lotus flower design.
- Mala counter clips like this one are often referred to as, "bhum" or "bum" mala counters. They open up and can be placed between the beads of your mala to count large amounts of mantras.
- Many Buddhists use prayer beads as a form of practice and prefer to keep count and track their mantra recitations. These counters are great for counting many mantras or marking special places on your mala.
A traditional mala counter typically has 10 beads on a string and is used to keep track of ten thousand mantras. Bhum style mala counters, known as million marker counters, can be used in conjunction with a traditional mala counter to track each set of ten thousand mantras. This ancient system gives you the opportunity to keep track of literally millions of mantras.
The lotus flower, in many cultures including Buddhism, represents purity and peace, blooming through the mud.
