Is it okay to use rudraksha Mala (108 beads, 5 faced) that I'm wearing to use to chant Gayatri Mantra? Or do I need a new one to use specifically for chanting Gayatri? If so, is there specific no of beads to be used to chant Gayatri?

  • I don't think it should matter if you are able to hold it comfortably in your hands while chanting. There are 108+1 beads in the japa malas as far as I know. – Just_Do_It Sep 10 '18 at 15:34
