Tiger's Eye Meditation Mala features yellow-gold beads that appear to hold untold stories and potential energy. The 108 round beads are carved and polished tiger eye crystal. The mala is a sacred string of prayer beads blessed with mantras that spiritual aspirants use in a practice called “japa.” Each mala has the auspicious number of 108 beads plus the untouched sumeru bead, which are made from natural materials capable of carrying energetic vibrations. Traditionally, the spiritual master blesses the mala with mantras and transfers divine energy to a disciple upon giving it.
A mala is typically made from 108 beads and one larger additional bead called a sumeru.
Begin the round with the sumeru and end when it is reached again.
The following round should begin with the same bead upon which the previous round ended.
The mala should be held in the right hand with the middle finger and thumb, never with the index finger which is considered inauspicious.
With each bead, one repeats the mantra.
“Japa is a type of communication between “here” and “beyond”, between the part and the Whole.
As in all types of communication, it cannot be the mumbling of empty words, it cannot be a mechanical or robotic repetition, but it must express an authentic and sincere intention. The mantra should be recited with the highest attention and deeply interiorized.” LxWxH: 16.5’’X0.25’’ Product Weight: lb 0.11lb
