Shiva Ji once entered deep meditation in the hope of bringing happiness to all living creatures. Upon waking from this meditation, his tears fell to earth. These tears became the seeds of the rudraksha tree, and these seeds bless one with peace of mind. As well as promoting peace, prosperity, and wellbeing, they can also protect against fear and evil. Furthermore, these seeds have a cooling and soothing effect when worn against the skin, making them beautiful to carry with you. And a great meditation tool to keep at hand.
Where do mala bead necklaces come from?
The mala bead necklace has been used for thousands of years. It originated in India around 3000 years ago. The necklaces were used in a meditation known as Japa. And are designed to prevent the mind from wandering during meditation practice. A mala bead necklace contains 108 mala beads, plus one guru bead. When meditating, the user can recite a mantra or affirmation 108 times. They can count the number of recitations easily by using the beads. In Sanskrit, mala means meditation garland.
