2. Find a comfortable space and sit quietly.
3. Close your eyes and spend a few moments observing your breath.
4. Begin to breathe deeply and bring your focus and attention onto your mantra or affirmation.
5. Hang the first mala bead gently on the middle or ring finger of your hand.
6. Place your thumb on the guru bead and begin reciting your mantra.
7. At the end of the mantra push the mala bead away with your thumb and move onto the next bead for another round.
8. Continue until you reach a count on 7, 21, 27, or 108.
