Labradorite: Intuition and Perseverance. 6th Ch
This mala is named after Gorakshanatha, who is said to be the founder of Hatha Yoga, the yoga most popular today. He flourished in the 11th Century as the leader of a group of Yogis called Kanphata who still roam the Himalayas and other parts of Northern India. His image shows Shiva’s trident, hinting at the Shaivite background of Hatha Yoga, but also prayer beads around his neck and sometimes a book, that symbolize learning and concentration.
