At the center of the mala, there is often a larger bead known as the guru bead or the meru bead. This bead marks the starting and ending point of the mala and represents the guidance and wisdom of the spiritual teacher or guru.

It invites individuals to cultivate mindfulness, compassion, and a deeper connection with the path of enlightenment.

The Buddha Eyes are sometimes referred to as Wisdom Eyes, and the watch in the four directions represents a Buddha's omniscience (all-seeing). The nose would be between the Buddha's eyes, but instead, there is a curly sign that resembles a question mark. This represents the number one in Nepali, which also represents the Buddha's teachings as the one path to enlightenment and the unity of all things. A third eye, representing the Buddha's all-seeing knowledge, is located above this.
