The Mala is made from the seeds of the Rudraksha Tree known as "The Tears of Shiva," thought to be the original Tree of Life. Similar to the Rosary, Malas are used for repetitive prayer, meditation or reciting mantras, traditionally, 108 times for the 108 seeds adorning this necklace. This Mala has been meticulously crafted with fine silk cord and a hand made 100% cotton tassel. The Guru, or teacher bead that crowns the tassel is silver plated. Rudraksha seeds are said to bring peace, wisdom and relief from insomnia.
