Jewels Of Meditation – Created with loving care, these intend to inspire!

by Jewels of Saraswati on Nov.25, 2009, under Handmade Jewelry

Not only do I love to create jewelry, but I also love to create japa malas to foster meditation and peace. Japas malas are used to count a mantra while meditating and can come in a variation on lengths. Mantras are typically repeated hundreds or even thousands of times. The mala is used so that one can focus on the meaning or sound of the mantra rather than counting its repetitions. Created with loving care,  these intend to inspire!

One repetition is usually said for each bead while turning the thumb clockwise around each bead, though some traditions or practices may call for counterclockwise motion or specific finger usage. When arriving at the head bead, one turns the mala around and then goes back in the opposing direction. This makes using the mala easier as the beads will not be so tight on the string when you use them.
