The practice of mantra recitation has flourished for untold millennia to help focus the mind, cultivate calmness, purify negative emotions, and gain wisdom.
Naturally red rudraksha seed malas are imbued with a dynamic energy. In Tibetan Buddhism, they are recommended for wrathful activity while, in Hinduism, they are related to the forceful activity of Shiva. Rudraksha beads grow naturally grooved into sections with 5 “faces” or facets the most common, though they can possess, rarely, from 1 to 21 “faces.”
To inspire and motivate progress in your mantra recitation, mala counters and marker clips can be added. When not using your mala, it should be kept safely and treated with respect. A mala bag ensure protection and longevity, and encases the mala thoughtfully for gifting to others.
