a mala is more than just a pretty necklace or bracelet. it's a meditation tool that could take your mindfulness practice to the next level of peace and power!
OPHINE'S chakra malas are carefully handcrafted using traditional Japa mala-making techniques. Each meaningful mala consists of 109 beads (108 + 1 guru bead) used for keeping count of a repeated mantra during meditation. The various tassel colors represent the colors of the 7 major chakras, and a few neutral colors. The beads are rudraksha seeds from the, rudraksha tree, which is considered sacred in Vedic and yoga traditions. In Sanskrit, "rudraksha" means "the teardrops of Shiva". Shiva is a Vedic deity who is said to have meditated on, and cried for the end of suffering for all living beings. According to ancient Vedic texts, Shiva's tears turned into rudraksha seeds.
Thus, it is said that rudraksha beads assist with ascending on the path to higher consciousness. Malas have been used as meditation tools for thousands of years, dating back to before the 8th century B.C. Malas are not specific to any one religion or belief system, but rather, mediation. Repeating a mantra while counting mala beads helps to focus and calm the mind, while bringing practitioners to a state of YOGA - union of mind, body, and soul.
