A simple mala dedicated to your mantra meditation practice. Made with Indian Neem wood, glass marker beads, a genuine Indian Lotus seed and finished with a handmade cotton tassel.

Indian Lotus Seeds: The significance of the Lotus Flower: The lotus flower symbolises spiritual knowledge and power. The lotus grows through the muddy waters, flowering above the surface into its beautiful form, and as the rains fall from above the drops don't stick on the petals but fall back into the water. Meaning that once someone has realisation what falls into the world no longer affects them. This conveys that a spiritual aspirant, while living in the world, should remain unaffected by the worldly attractions and should work towards spiritual unfoldment.

Neem Wood: In India, neem is known as “the village pharmacy” because of its healing versatility, and it has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for more than 4,000 years due to its medicinal properties. Neem is also called ‘arista’ in Sanskrit- a word that means ‘perfect, complete and imperishable’. The seeds, bark and leaves contain compounds with proven antiseptic, antiviral, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer and antifungal uses. The Sanskrit name ‘nimba’ comes from the term ‘nimbati syasthyamdadati’ which means ‘to give good health’. http://organeem.com/neem_tree.html
