This rudraksha mala has 72 beads of rudraksha seeds and Lava beads, so it can be used for prayer and meditation/mantra as well as as a necklace.

The mala necklace measures approximately 31cm long, and 38cm long including the Monk amulet. The Monk amulet is 6cm high by 4.5cm wide, and the Buddhas are 4cm and 3.5cm tall.

The amulets i found at a vintage Amulet market in Bangkok. Any minor marks or scratches on them add to the charm of the item. the mala i string and knot myself using new rudraksha and lava beads.

If you walk certain streets of Bangkok, you will sometimes stumble upon old Thai gentlemen, set up right on the sidewalk peddling their antique bric a brac.I shouldn't really say bric a brac, as often times these treasures,laid out in an old tray or on a dogeared piece of velvet,are beautiful and fascinating ,beautiful, and very precious.There will be a huddle of fellow old Gentlemen, crouching low on the sidewalk, each equiped with an old eyeglass, perusing these waresoften chattering passionately about something to do with what they have found.It took me a while to pluck up the courage to peer over these old collectors, not wanting to disturb their concentration , to discover what they were so intently looking for. I discovered the excitement was over these small tablet-like icons, of Buddha,and various other buddhist figures and teachers. Some very old, and some older than others, often handcarved in stone, or set from a stonelike resin or metal. Some of them have writing carved into the back also, perhaps spiritual words from the teacher... Thailand is predominently Buddhist,and many people are very devote,often wear these mini tablets in plastic or glass cases, like amulets around the neck. I once saw this old dude of a guy,and he had a huge necklace with many of these pendants,from palm sized to tiny adorning his neck...like a Thai MR.T !!


Rudraksha are considered sacred in Hindu Mythology, always seen adorning Hindu gods, and their worshipping sadhus, being traditionally used as prayer beads.A common type has five divisions, and these are considered to be symbolic of the five faces of Shiva.The word Rudraksha is derived from Rudra (Shiva—the Hindu God of all living creatures) and aksha (eyes). One Hindu legend says that once Lord Shiva became so compassionate after seeing the sufferings of mankind that He could not help but shed a tear from his eye. This single tear from Shiva’s eye grew into the Rudraksha tree.
