About this Product
Shivapuri Baba was born into a Brahmin family in 1826 in Kerala who spent 20 years in absolute solitude in the jungles, until he started, as he says, to ‘see God as Absolute’. With 50 he went on a pilgrimage around the world, the most part of it on foot, spreading the message of Yoga wherever he went. He was a sensation at that time, spent time as a guest of Queen Victoria, and met with Roosevelt. He then went for the ultimate journey to Nepal, and died with 137 years of age, a life of a Yogi as witnessed and retold by J.G. Bennet in his inspiring book ‘The Long Pilgrimage’.
This mala bead necklace is traditionally used as a tool for mantra chanting and meditation. Today we also wear them as yoga jewellery and healing jewellery.
Each crystal bead in this mala has metaphysical therapeutic qualities that benefit the wearer.
