A JAPA MALA TUTORIAL:

Here is a tutorial for the prayer beads they use in Hinduism and Buddhism.

This tutorial has you stringing all of the beads straight on the cord, but I have seen malas that had knots between the stones (I think that’s better, in case the cord breaks  (it’s easier to track down the beads between the knots, rather than chase the whole string of beads)
