Hand made Japa Mala Bead Necklace. Hand knotted with intention between each bead. Tied together with two knots, once to represent feminine side, and once to represent masculine side, coming together. The Guru Bead is slightly bigger then the rest of the beads and is used to create intention and to be a reminder of the motives for sitting in meditation. Hand made tassel - the string tied around it was wrapped 5 times to represent each of the 5 elements - earth, air, fire, water, and either. The tassel itself has been known to represent a lotus blossom and enlightmenment. 108 beads on each mala, 6mm beads. The number 108 is considered a sacred number in hinduism, buddhism, and yogic tradition. Malas are used for devotional meditation, and mantra recitation. Mantras are recited a total of 108 times, hence the need for 108 beads! Mala has been cleansed and charged!
