This distinctive meditation mala (rosary) is made of 108 hematite beads. The beads are strung by hand, imparting the highest level of quality to each individual mala. A single Rudraksha seed serves as the guru bead, the beginning point from which all meditative chants began.
Prayer beads are an indispensable tool for meditation. Each bead is used to count the repetition of a mantra or chant. The number 108 bears spiritual significance across several religions. When a mantra is repeated 108 times, the person meditating is connecting with the spirit of the universe, paying respects in deep humility to that which pervades all life.
Handmade in India: slight variation in tassel color or guru bead color and texture is natural and reflects the organic process behind each individual mala.
