Rudraksha Mala - 108 beads - 7mm - Various Colours
For mantra meditation practice.
Often referred to as beads, rudrakshas are actually seeds that grow inside of a blueberry like pod.
The name rudraksha (pronounced rud-ruck-sha) stems from Hindu mythology and means “the eyes of Shiva.”
It’s believed that the God meditated on the welfare of mankind and emerged crying tears of compassion. The tears, upon hitting the Earth, crystallized to form the trees that grow rudrakshas.
Rudrakshas are believed to increase clarity and general awareness, calm the central nervous system, help quiet the mind, and free you from negative thought.
Rudraksha beads are sacred and should be treated with respect and care. Wash them once in a while to remove dirt and dust. Oil them with coconut or sandalwood oil to preserve them. They will turn darker with your own body oil when wearing them. This is the desired effect. Take them off when you sleep.
There are 12 colours available; silver, gold, black, burgundy, orange, cream, purple, dusty pink, bright pink, turquoise, bright jade green and red.
