WHAT IS A MALA?
A Japamala or mala is a string of prayer beads commonly used in Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Shintō and other traditions for the spiritual practice known in Sanskrit as japa.
They are similar to other forms of prayer beads used in various world religions and sometimes referred to in English as a "rosary".
Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. Malas are more than just jewellery. They are powerful tools for meditation.
You do not need to be religious or have a spiritual practice to wear mala beads - you can simply wear them as a reminder of the personal intention you've set, or when seeking a more peaceful mind, body, and spirit.
Lovely necklace, and wonderfully made. Colours are delightful.
Friends loved these as gifts. Beads are beautiful and have a nice weight to them. Definitely can't wait to order something for myself.
Quick delivery and bracelet is just gorgeous thank you x
This is the second necklace I purchased from this shop. Im so blown away but it's beauty and it has a nice weight to it. Again, super fast shipping. Our communication was easy and open. Thank you so much Belle, I am so grateful for the effort and love you've put into these necklaces! XXX
I have nothing but positive things to say about Belle and her gorgeous creations! I purchased 2 necklaces. This piece was love at first sight and I gifted it to my mum who absolutely loves it. Its even more gorgeous in real life which i didn't think was possible. Received it no time with a hand written letter inside and this incredible smell filled the air when I opened the package! Absolutely would buy again in future XX
The necklace is absolutely stunning and beautifully made. But belle the owner of the store went above and beyond. When I received my purchase it wasn't only beautifully wrapped, it came with a affirmation card, a palo santo stick, a really thoughtful handwritten letter and the plastic slip itself bursted open with the smell of sage. The level of care and thought the owner of this store has not only put into her products but also her customers is above and beyond. So special to receive this and can't wait for my next purchase!!!!!"
Awesome bracelets! Just as pictured and described; no problems with shipping. Very happy with bracelets :)
Received this really quickly. I love the bracelet. Also loved that there was a little bag to store it in, a note & a card as well. Highly recommend this shop. A lovely experience that you never receive from a bricks-and-mortar store.
This is such a gorgeous piece. Even more beautiful in real life.
Perfect. Love this beautiful bracelet.
This Mala is absolutely stunning!! I love it, wear it nearly everywhere. Shipping, the way it was packaged and received was beautiful, handwritten note and a card from Gabby Berstein's Miracles now deck, above and beyond.
Wow! What can I say? This necklace is GORGEOUS! I was a bit wary of the pendant size but it is smaller than I was expecting & not as heavy as I thought it would be. I love the length of the necklace & the fact that it is still 108 beads so I can use it in my meditation practice. The quality of the beads & of the knotting is fantastic. I had this in my cart for a while & I'm so glad I made the decision to purchase it. Thank you so much. I will definitely be buying more necklaces! ps I loved how the necklace was packaged & the inspirational card was a lovely little bonus. The necklace arrived super quick too!
Arrived super quick - especially during Christmas period! Fit perfectly and looks great! Highly recommend.
