Making malas makes me happy.
I have made my own since 2009 and after receiving so many compliments from my friends about them, I decided to start making a few for others.
I had no idea how much it would grow.
Im now making malas and little mandala cards every single day.
This makes me super happy.
Making malas is a meditation practice for me.
I light candles. I chant on every bead. I take my time to patiently make each strand special and unique. Combining stones that enhance each others healing properties to encourage transformation.
As I deepen in my practice I notice that the beauty of each bead shines brighter.
I make mandala cards to accompany each Mala bracelet so regardless of if they are a gift to yourself or to someone in your life, the wearer knows the symbolism of these sacred stones.
Malas have long been known as a source of power.
Each strand of beads is a multiple of 108 not counting the spacer beads.
108 being an auspicious number for many reasons.
Geometrically it is the natural division of a circle 108=36+72=9 X 12
In Hindu tradition 108 is the number of names or paths to God and also symbolic for spiritual completion, oneness or liberation.
