Novica Hematite Jap Mala Prayer Beads with Tassel, 31.5", 'Pray', Hand Made in India Novica Hematite Jap Mala Prayer Beads with Tassel, 31.5", 'Pray', Hand Made in India

NOVICA, in association with National Geographic, works together with talented artisan designers around the world to produce stunning, keepsake treasures. Our mantra is to spread global happiness, so rest assured - we'll do everything we possibly can to ensure you're a happy customer. About this item: Ritu honors Hinduism and Buddhism with a glistening jap mala that is crafted by hand with hematite, gem of intuition and strength. Also known as prayer beads or rosary, it consists of 108 malas or beads, sometimes 109, which are flicked with the thumb during jap or meditation. That way the person may concentrate fully on repeating mantras. In Buddhism, the 108 beads represent the human passions, while in Hinduism their symbolism is more complex. The number may refer to the names of Vishnu and Shiva in the Mahabharat; the 108 Upanishads; the number of deities of knowledge and various sciences; and the various permutations of the soul's defects, amongst others. According to Hindu custom, the correct way to hold the jap mala is with the right hand, draped over the middle finger and using the thumb to flick through the beads. Since it is believed the index finger represents ego, the greatest impediment to self-realization, it is best avoided when chanting. The beads are strung on polyester and finished with a polyester tassel. The necklace measures 31.5" by 0.3".About our Artist: Hi, I'm Ritu Aggarwal, and I was born in Jaipur, popularly known as the pink city. But did you know that it is also called the City of Gems? For me, to be in the field of jewelry is like being in dreamland for I have always wanted to be connected to this wonderful world of gems and jewelry. I grew up here and had a lot of fun. The vibrant and architectural beauty of the city is a sight to enjoy. I remember spending our weekend time in the park and strolling around the monuments. This always took us to the ancient era of kings and queens....
