Prayer for Lord Krishna
Mantra: Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
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.
Tulasī is a sacred plant whose name means “the incomparable one.” She is a great devotee of Lord Vishnu, who incarnated as Sri Krishna and Lord Rama, and is worshipped as a living goddess, particularly by those who admire the transcendental devotion of Radhe-Govinda. Tulasī beads are carved from its stems and are auspicious because they please Lord Vishnu and bring the wearer closer to the Divine.
“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
