Plain Malas Necklace
Item #: P5.5
This is the essential mala, similar to the ones worn by Buddha, Gandhi and the Dalai Lama. Tuck this traditional rudraksha mala inside your shirt, to be worn against the skin. The subtle saffron colored threads will be noticed by the most observant, as the beads may peak out on occasion, continuing the mystery of these powerful malas. In and out, in and out, isn?t it ALL just an exercise in breathing?
These unique handcrafted jewelry pieces are lovingly made in Bali. Each bead has been hand picked, blessed, and chosen for its "energy" level. Our malas are made with small rudraksha, rare and prized for their more potent energy. A rudraksha bead is believed to impart different types of benefits according to the number of segments (similar to that of an orange) or mukhi. We use only rudrakshas of five mukhi. It is traditionally believed that they can destroy negative thought and grant the wearer peace of mind, clarity, and purpose.
Rudrakshas can have a very long life, known to last up to eight generations. They are considered sacred and need to be treated with respect and care. Wash them occasionally to remove dirt and dust. Oil them with coconut or sandalwood oil to preserve them. They will naturally turn darker with your own body oil.. this is the desired effect as they will grow stronger. Keep in a place of sanctity. Remove when you sleep. Our beads are authentic, sustainably harvested, fairly traded and ethically produced.
Make it distinctively your own by selecting the option to add a gem guru bead. Your unique gem guru bead will be selected from our variety of gemstones, varying in shape and size.
Available in the following sizes, keeping in mind they are all hand strung and relax a bit after wear: P-5.5 = 12" long P-6 = 13." long p-6.5 = 15.5" long p-7 = 14.5" long p-7.5 = 16" long p-8 = 18" long p-10 = 22.5" long.
