This 108 bead mala is named after Lord Shiva, the Hindu God if Protection. It was designed using two of the most powerful gemstones for protection and grounding; black obsidian and red tiger eye. Each bead is hand-knotted on cord made from sustainably sourced hemp. The guru bead is made from black onyx, another powerful stone of protection, and the tassel is antique gold plated chain with a filigree come cap.
After the mala is crafted, it is blessed with a simple ceremony using nag champa incense and white sage. Then, during a period of deep meditation, the mala is infused with Shakti, which is the spiritual power of transformation that resides within all things.
