JAPA is the term in India for the spiritual discipline for using a mala (108 bead necklace) to chant mantras or names of the divine. This mala has been specifically designed to be used as a tool in meditation and chanting.
Made from the holy Rudraksha seed, worn by the believers of the Indian God Shiva, this mala has an amethyst crystal spacer bead every 27 beads to aid in the counting of the mantras.
This mala is hand-knotted in the traditional Indian way to allow the rudraksha seeds to slip through your fingers easily. It is finished with a tassel made from hand-spun organic ahimsa silk.
Rudraksha and stone size: 8.5mm
