Anatomy Of A Mala Necklace

We are all strung together on a universal thread of love ‘Amma’.

Each mala necklace is traditionally hand knotted and made with love.

There are 108 beads and a guru stone, the affirmation and character of the mala is born from the qualities and meanings of the stones.

Because of their incredible earthy quality, and the fact that these are rocks pulled from the core of the earth, note that each mala is unique as no two stones look exactly the same.

Here we break down all the different parts of Chanting Stork 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.

Signature Bead – A reminder of Chanting Storks mantra ‘Mindfulness Through Movement’.

Tassel – We believe the tassel of your mala acts as a link, between the thread of love that the beads are strung on and the intention the mala represents for you. As the strands combine together into one, it represents connection.

Gemstones – They help bring different qualities and intentions into each mala.

Sandalwood- Celebrated as the perfect meditation tool for thousands of years. It is widely believed that sandalwoods soothing fragrance can stimulate sensuality, grant a sense of awareness, invoke tranquillity, awaken divine thoughts within and promote profound relaxation.

Both soothing and fragrant. It attracts positive energy, and clear perception and promotes tranquillity. Wearing Sandalwood acts as an antidepressant, antiseptic, and is a sedative wood. It promotes healing of the cells and assist the immune system with preventing illness.
