Carnelian Mala Beads~JMALACAR
Individually Knotted 108 Bead Carnelian Mala Beads~JMALACAR. A Japa mala or mala (Sanskrit: meaning garland[) is a string of prayer beads commonly used by Hindus, Buddhists and some Sikhs for the spiritual practice known in Sanskrit as japa. It is usually made from 108 beads, though other numbers are also used. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. These resemble the practice of the use of a Rosary in Catholicism. 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. One repetition is usually said for each bead. When arriving at the head bead, one turns the mala around and then goes back in the opposing direction. There are typically knots between each bead. This makes using the mala easier as the beads will not be so tight on the string when you use them. Carnelian stimulates analytical capabilities and precision, enhances perceptiveness to situations and awakens ones talents. It is also used to produce inspiration from, and connected-ness with, the spiritual worlds. It protects against envy, fear, and rage, and helps banish sorrow from the emotional structure. Carnelian is said to remove fear of death, bringing an acceptance of the life cycle. It provides an energy conducive to the stabilization of energy in the home, and strengthens the bonds of love between parent and child. The message of carnelian is that since one IS love, there is nothing to do but offer the love. It stimulates inquisitiveness and dispels apathy and passivity. It reminds us of the balance between connecting with the Divine and actually taking action on the guidance and inspiration we have received, we must take initiative and signal the universe by our actions that we are truly prepared to do what it takes to achieve our dreams, that we are co-creators with the Divine. Say to yourself "I am willing to create my reality". 8mm beads.
