bonding with a mala
I think touch is important with a mala; 'grainy' beads rather than smooth add to meditation and the spacers give another totally different touch that can say "you're meditating, remember?" and bring you back. This is my first experience with spacers. For me, it takes some time to 'bond' with a mala but I bonded with this one with the first mantra.. I highly recommend this mala, not only because of the variations in touch but because it is extremely beautiful.
