Regular price $ 58.25 Sale

Moonstone is known as a fertility crystal and is traditionally used to aid women - during pregnancy and childbirth, to ease menstrual cramps and to rebalance hormones during the menopause. 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.

 This mala, made from the gem moonstone, carries a peaceful air as the light plays with the white marbled beads.
  • The 108 round beads are carved and polished moonstone.
  • With each bead, one repeats the mantra.
  • Materials: Natural Moon Stone
  • Technical Specifications: L x 0.187" W x 0.187" H

 

 
A round of Japa begins with the Sumeru and ends when it is reached again. Subsequent rounds always begin with the bead upon which the previous round ended. The mala should be held in the right hand with the middle finger and thumb. The index finger, which is considered inauspicious, should not be used to perform Japa. “Japa is a kind of communication between “here” and “beyond”, between the part and the Whole. 
 
As with any type of communication, it cannot be a mumbling of empty words, or a mechanical or robotic repetition, but must be the expression of an authentic and sincere intention. The mantra should be recited with the highest attention and deeply interiorized.”
