Malas are hand-knotted prayer pieces traditionally used in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Yoga practices. They consist of 108 beads, each bead representing a repetition during meditation. They are traditionally used as a tool to help the mind focus.
The 109th stone is the guru stone, and symbolizes gratitude and our connection to the divine and allows us to say thank you to our spiritual leaders for guiding us on the path to enlightenment.
Our Nurture Mala is hand-crafted with 6mm Kiwi Jasper gemstone beads, along with gold electroplated Hematite accents, and a Kiwi Jasper guru bead with a cotton tassel. This necklace hangs approximately 21 inches long from top to bottom.
