Bad Buddhists are necklaces of beads that are used to recite the mantras; a symbolic practice tool. The bad ends have 108 beads that symbolize the 108 passions and also the 108 knowledge. The number 108, according to the tantric tradition, is a sacred number and represents the universe, hence the Tibetan Buddhist rosary has exactly 108 beads.
The beads of a Buddhist rosary are passed from left to right , clockwise, as the mantras are repeated or recited. The beginning and end of the Buddhist rosary is marked by a larger bead known as guru. Bead 109, guru, is never passed. So, when you get to the end, you start again, but counterclockwise.
