Not entirely sure what you are asking but a few basic points below. Hopefully I've not over simplified it for you.

One mala has 108 beads. So to do jaap of Mool Mantr you just recite one Mool Mantr per bead moving along continuously until you reach the end of the mala. To do 32 mala you need to repeat what I've just said 32 times.

Sometimes you see people with a smaller mala. These have 27 beads so 4 small malas equal one large one (4 * 27 = 108).

The whole point of using a mala is to keep count. I suppose when you are doing a large number of malas then you need an extra mala to keep count of how many malas you've done. Alternatively, get yourself a "clicker" or phone app which you can use to increment the count.

Please remember that using a mala is just a tool to help you progress spiritually by setting you a target.

    • Logic being that when we had our Sikh raj society was much fairer no one went hungry when maharajah ranjit singh passed poor people it is said he gave away something to keep the people looked after. Sikh raj where all people was treated equally no religious community got to oppress the other, and there was equality of opportunity in his government and army too. Look at the capitalist societies today there is incredible wealth at the top 1% and incredible poverty at the bottom 99% of the pyramid. When we had muslims ruled over punjab we saw non-muslims were treated as 3rd class citizens and brutally oppressed same as christian british rule they racially oppressed the natives. And what do we have in present day punjab? its the elites all banding together keeping their chairs safe against the interests of the people they claim to represent. So we have the badals and captain amrinder singhs who are related by marriages. They pretend to be Sikhs, they appear to be sikhs but wWhat have they done for Sikhs and Sikhi? zero contribution really.......they have let the british and indian establishment drain the wealth of punjab dry. Why do they allow it? because they are leaders and puppets of the same corrupt regimes thats responsible for oppression sikhs and sikhi. The British establishment covers for the genocidal crimes of the indian establishment. Why? because the "elites" of these establishments have hoarded away the wealth stolen from our nations and communities so naturally like a den of thieves they look out for each other against the people they stole off from.
    • Yh i go through his page sometimes, some really interesting stuff 
    • 1st week i started skipping my legs hurt so much afterwards i couldn't go up the stairs! i actually went up and down sitting on the stairs lol   but now 4 weeks in i can skip 40 mins and still can go on longer.   i feels really good under the sun  sweaty and everything lol    t shirt gets drenched though which is annoying, i would skip with my top off but i have a very conservative shy sri lankan woman living nxt door and our wall is low and it would just be really awkward   shes really shy of me anyway.     it feels good doing it under the sun with the heat   
    • I can eat a lot at one go and then not eat for like 8 or 9 hours   but i spread it out to 3 or 4 times. iv stopped eating chocolate, sweets, etc  i had a sandwich in the morning vegan and now i just had a vegan burger in a brown bread roll, gnna skip for around 40 mins later on and then at night have roti.   if i hadn't had the burger i probably would of had porridge. but burger was really filling. the actual burger was 94cals   i have actually noticed a slight difference.  im not even fat, im not even big im only around 5ft8 and naturally slim, but last few weeks iv started developing this repulsive pig like looking layer of fat which i wanna get rid off!  i took my top off in front of the mirror and was like <banned word filter activated> do i look like but since iv started cutting down on food and the skipping, and doing other fat loss stuff from youtube iv actually noticed a difference. i eat fruit as well, strawberries, berries, apple, banana etc    greet tea, nettle tea etc i read somewhere treat your body like a temple and not a dustbin
