Anatomy of Mala Beads
“WE ARE ALL BEADS STRUNG TOGETHER ON A UNIVERSAL THERAD OF LOVE” AMMA
Mala beads are a set of beads that have traditionally been used in prayer and meditation — often called prayer beads.
Our mala beads can be worn by anyone seeking a calmer mind, body, and spirit and are perfect for japa meditation.
Here we break down all the different parts of our authentic malas:
Overhand Knotting – Chanting Stork malas are hand knotted between each bead and gemstone. This makes the malas stronger, and gives perfect space for japa meditation.
Guru Bead – This bead is believed to represent the student-guru relationship.
Tassel – There are a few different meaning represented by the tassel on your mala. Here are a few that resonated with us:
– The tassel represents enlightenment.
– As the strands combine together in to one, it represents our connection to the Divine and to each other. Oneness.
– Symbolizes our prana and consciousness.
Gemstones – They help bring different qualities and intentions in to each piece.
