Aroundsquare's MKUltras are a hybrid of traditional Greek komboloi, mala beads, and tesbih, carried throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. They can be worn or carried in the pocket, and work beautifully for mind control.. stilling the thoughts through mindfulness exercises, breath work, or meditation. While they can be used to simply keep the hands busy and the mind at ease, with practice, a wide range of tricks and repeating patterns can be learned.
