Ending with a tassel sprayed out in reverent colors. It has become a fashion item.
They lay around my neck always knowing there is a spiritual depth, essence to them never knowing what ...
As I have seen thousands and thousands of them in the streets of India in shops & around necks in many countries around the world.
I love their presence, always beckoning,whether the color or the roundness of the beads, the big bead (Guru Bead ) at the end . Ended with a tassel sprayed out in reverent colors .
December 2017 ... I bowed my head as my teacher placed the Mala around my neck . Dark Rosewood with a burgundy tassel. Simple, not expensive jewel or bead, this Mala now placed on my neck has become a symbol of deep reverence and honor .
A symbol and connection to stillness to go “INWARD”
This mala would forever travel with me . Around my wrist, neck or laid in my right hand threading the beads Though my fingers releasing, connecting, the restless mind or the deep devotion to the mantra I would later learn to chant.
