Tiger Eye Mala - 108 Prayer Beads
Prayer for Mother Durga
Mantra: Om Sri Durgayai 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.
Durgā is the invincible form of the Devi. The supremely radiant goddess rides a lion and carries in her eight arms various weapons, such as Lord Shiva’s trident and Lord Vishnu’s disc, as well as the lotus flower, which together symbolize the unity of all divine forces. Durgā manifests when the existence of the gods is threatened. Self-sufficient, she is the goddess of the divine feminine power known as Shakti.
“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
