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 a carnelian gemstone 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
All Malas come in our Natural Cotton fabric pouches stitched and NGO, SEWING NEW FUTURES which provide training skills to underprivileged women.
