A mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. They are sacred and beautiful and can be worn as a necklace or wrapped around your wrist multiple times. Malas are made with 108 beads and a guru bead. They can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27, or 54, which would require the user to make several rotations to complete their full meditation. The number 108 has spiritual significance as it is believed that we have 108 lines of energy in our bodies which converge to form the anahata, or the heart chakra.
This mala is made with 6mm Sunset Mookaite and Lodolite Quartz beads. The guru is Ocean Jasper. Jaspers are the supreme nurturer of stones. They provide living support and assistance to the wearer. Mookaite (also called Australian Jasper) is a powerful healing stone that helps provide stability to one's perspective of life, helping make the right decisions based on objective knowledge. Lodolite helps the wearer connect to higher vibrations with its calm, quiet energy and can bring harmony to the areas where you have disscord in your life. The silky luxe tassel is deep red. The mala is strung on red wine colored C-lon thread and is hand knotted between each stone.
