Malachite Mala - 108 Prayer Beads
Prayer for Mother Lakshmi
Mantra: Om Sri Mahalaksmyai Namah
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. In order to keep this sacred energy pure, no one else should touch the beads. As it is highly important to keep your mala away from external energy, we have designed an attractive encasement, available only at Prabhuji's Gifts, in order to keep the beads' energy sealed and completely protected from unwanted energy.
Lakṣmī, the consort of Lord Vishnu, is one of the primary forms of the Devī and is the goddess of spiritual and material wealth and prosperity. With a beautiful golden complexion, Lakṣmī symbolizes beauty, fertility and purity. Her four arms represent the four aims of human life: dharma (righteousness), artha (wealth), kama (desire), and moksha (liberation from the cycle of birth and death).
“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 highest attention and deeply interiorized.” ~ Prabhuji
