Mala Beads Stormy Quartz
Mala beads are a string of beads traditionally used in prayer and meditation. It is a tool to help count mantras during your meditation and is also a beautiful reminder of our intentions that we set. Mala beads have been used in Buddhism and Hinduism for centuries. Each bead is blessed. In Hinduism, you will find Malas made with rudraksha which is considered a really holy and protective seed. Some Malas are made from gemstones that match the intention of your practice and have 108 beads, a guru and/or a tassel.
The tassel combines the cotton strands together into one. It represents our connection to the divine and to each other. Malas were first created in India 3000 years ago and were used for a special kind of meditation called Japa which means, "to recite." The term Mala is the Sanskrit word for 'meditation garland'.
When choosing your Mala beads ask yourself: "what's my intention?", "What am I trying to manifest?" Your mala beads are a daily reminder of your intention.
Our Mala beads are a beautiful array of quartz. We chose quartz because it works as an amplifier of your intentions when you meditate. Crystals are wonderful to have to clear negative energy, purify the environment and send your intentions into the universe.
These Malas were hand made in the majestic and holy city of Varanasi in India. This holy place where the notorious Ganga river passes through has several names: Banares, Kashi and Varanasi.
