The purpose of the Global Mala Project is to unite the global yoga community from every continent and all yoga traditions to form a mala (chain) around the world through collective practice based on the sacred cycle of 108. This is the yoga world's offering to support the United Nations International Peace Day. Each Global Mala event dedicates their practice to integrating service and action.
