    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.

    Care Instructions

    A mala was traditionally seen as a sacred object and not shown to anyone.

    Today we like to wear and absorb the healing vibrations of the crystals, but remember that this is still a sacred object. Treat your mala like you would treat a photo of your teacher, with care and respect. Our malas as strung on high-grade wire or knotted on fine cotton thread. Please do not put your mala into water, as this will degrade the wire or the cotton string. You can wash your tassel (only your tassel!) in a little warm water with some baby (or other soft) shampoo. Gently tease out any tangles with a comb after drying. Certain crystals will loose colour if placed in direct sunlight. Protect your mala in the cloth pouch provided. Crystals absorb vibrations and it is a good idea to cleanse your crystals once a month either with smoke from incense or by placing your mala under the rays of the full moon outside or on the windowsill.
