These Mala Necklaces, featuring 108 Rudraksha seed beads are traditionally used in Hinduism, for meditating and reciting prayers and mantras.
Rudraksha beads are known to radiate tremendous life force energy, calm the mind, purify sins and protect against negativity and harm.
Rudraksha Malas have been used by Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists since at least the 10th century. The word Rudraksha is derived from Rudra (Shiva—the Hindu god of all living creatures) and Aksha (eyes). Hindu legend says that once Lord Shiva opened His eyes after a long period yogic meditation, and because of extreme fulfillment He shed a tear. This single tear from Shiva’s eye grew into the Rudraksha tree.
