Malas and mandalas. During RE, we learnt about malas. These are beads that Buddhists use while meditating. Mala beads are used in prayer and meditation with mantras for each bead. The Mala are meant to help you to remain focused, they do this by being a tactile reminder of what you are meant to be doing – meditating. Buddhists also use mandalas while meditating. We created our own mandalas out of flour. We then blew them away as Buddhists believe in impermanence (everything changes).
