To put it very simply, a mala is like a Buddhist rosary. Some schools of Buddhism use malas in much the same way as prayer beads. They meditate, recite mantras, or count breaths for each of the 108 beads.

Mala of the Heart is a book of 108 poems. All of the poems or thoughts are short, just a few lines. The editors have brought together a lot of Rumi, Hafiz, and Lalla works. However, poems are also written by people such as St. Catherine of Siena, St. Francis of Assisi, and W.B. Yeats.

Just lovely and inspiring! It's remarkable how old some of these writings are and how it holds true across the many different belief systems.

Great collection. Spiritual, sacred here means god-- in case that concerns you. Nice range of poets. Wish there were commentary.
