Rudraksha Prayer Mala Beads (8mm)
Size: approx. length 45-50cm
People often ask why we should wear a Mala or Radraksh necklace and what they are used for? It is good to note that you do not have to be religious to wear or use mala beads. It is important though to understand their use and respect their significance. The beads, in a traditional mala, are Rudraksha seeds, produced by several species of large evergreen trees associated with the Hindu deity Shiva. In the yogic tradition the beads are used in japamala practice to recite mantras in meditation (hence the name). A full cycle of 108 repetitions is counted on the mala so the practitioner can focus on the sounds, vibration and meaning of what is being said. A simple and common example of a Sanskrit mantra often chanted at the end of a yoga class would be ‘om shanti shanti shanti’ which is a calling out to connect us with inner peace.
They are also great to be used doing meditation and breath work and can help keep us grounded in the NOW and focused on staying in the love and light rather than constantly being distracted by the Maya “Illusion of life”.
Rudraksha Prayer Mala Beads are also very beautiful to be worn as a fashion piece with massive high-energy vibrations and by wearing ones Mala we carry the beautiful energy and vibrations of the divine source and spirit everywhere we go.
