This is a 108 bead mala made from the sacred Rudraksha seed grown on the holy Rudraksha tree. These trees are found in India and many parts of Asia. Rudrasksha are very rare and precious. Spiritually they have been worn and used for puja and meditation by Hindus and Buddhists for many centuries. Transcending science, it has to be said that there is an unexplainable positive powerful force manifested in Rudraksha, to which there is no scientific gauge. Buddhists wore Rudraksha beads, along with the Dalai Lama, Gandhi and many enlightened yogis. Today Rudraksha are sought after in the east and west, by those who know the qualities of these rare beads. Anyone can wear them and benefit, irrespective of religion, caste, creed, colour or sex. They are truly "the gem of all beads". Rose Quartz is known as the stone of LOVE. It serves to open the heart and enhances creativity. It heals emotional wounds and broken hearts. It is beneficial to the circulatory system and aids in relieving anxiety. These malas are made by hand and filled with LOVE. Wear them and feel your heart open and soar. Enjoy.
