I find this mala beads to be calming, very relaxing. Originally, I wanted to use this as a necklace but once I had it my hands, I knew it would be a beautiful bracelet. This bracelet is mysteriously beautiful, very enchanting. It is use for meditation and prayer by Buddhists which is a religion that I admire because of their tenacity and calm. It also offers protection, healing and some even say fertility. The malas are porous and quite unique. Each bead is knotted individually into this bracelet (necklace, if you like) making it look delicate. It is a bit heavy which I like because for me, it adds to the meaning of it. It also has guru beads in case its being used for meditation or prayer. The red tassel represents enlightenment, and symbolizes lotus blossoms. If used as jewelry be prepared to answer a lot of questions about it because it is alluring, and others will want to know more about it. Overall, I’m still trying to commit to meditate and this bracelet helps me. I don’t do the 108, I hope one day I’m able to do it as it would be a great personal accomplishment.
