I am creating a few japa bracelets / wrist malas from genuine Rudraksha & Sphatik (Quartz Snow Crystal) and other wood beads such as Rosewood, Tulsi and Sandalwood from my own Vintage Collection which have worn the strings over the many years of use. i have combined these with indigenous Rudraksha that I purchased from Adiwasi tribal people at Narmada Devi's side. Before removing the worn string that they were carried on, I cleanse the beads over the smoke of a Yajnya Fire to remove any negative vibrations they may have picked up, sanctifying them to their healing purpose. here is of the last of the lot, a rare and lovely hand faceted pure Himalayan snow crystal, you will be very happy to recieve its energy!

7.5 approx wrist size on stretch cord, the japa can be done using a counting system of 12 x 9 = 108 repetitions. the 12 faceted crystal provide the base of this, the rudraksha/ turquoise howlite cluster would be the guru bead and the rosewood/ silver is a pausing point for reflection. the method is to not cross the guru bead once you begin so clockwise then counter clockwise until complete. you also may devise your own method as these are non-traditional mala, the healing properties of the gems and sacred beads are enough to act as prayer on their own without words.

if you want to read more - the language of gemstones is at its best here.

Yoga is "citta vritti nirodhah" (Yoga Sutras of Patanjali ch 1 v 2) essentially meaning to end all disturbances of the mind; to quiet the mind and stop the constant fluctuation of thoughts in the mind. Third eye (Ajna) focus is brought into clarity by calm, loving kindness.

HOWLITE s a very calming stone. It is excellent for insomnia, as it will help the mind to calm down. This also makes it a good stone for meditation. Howlite teaches patience. Carry a howlite to meetings to keep tempers and anger away. Howlite is white and often has black lines in it. howlite which has been dyed TURQUOISE also enhances the wearer's ability to communicate with kindness and grace, in a calm and refined state of compassionate consciousness.

ROSEWOOD has compassionate and loving-heart qualities. The energy of rosewood is primarily feminine, and focused on spiritual, intuitive health and beauty. It is spiritual and nourishing. Rosewood is especially effective in spiritual healing. In matters dealing with beauty, rosewood can be very effective. Carried or worn as a charm, this wood will enhance female qualities in a man or woman and feminine grace. Frivolous energies will not be enhanced by this wood.

SNOW CRYSTAL (SPHATIK) - Sphatik is a snow rock crystal from India, a colorless glistening and smooth stone. According to Jyotish astrology, Sphatik is associated with the Planet Venus (Planet of love) and is used as a replacement for diamond to remedy the effects of planet Venus.

Sphatik Mala is used for meditation purposes. Sphatik is the purest material obtainable on earth for use in japa and other forms of worship. Sphatik in India, is regarded as an excellent medium for religious practices from time immemorial, it is associated with Shri Sarasvati Mata, learning, music, art, poetry, sciences and medicine. Not only the Hindus, but the Christians and Muslims also use Crystal mala as a Japa Mala or Prayer Beads. Its naturally cool tendency makes it an ideal product to wear to keep one cool.

Quartz is a Master Healer stone. It is an excellent all purpose healer. It amplifies healing energy. It is said to draw out pain. Quartz fortifies and strengthens all systems of the body. Quartz is reputed to be particularly effective for chronic fatigue, arthritis, bone injuries, depression, fibromyalgia, lymes disease, lupus and MS. It improves mental and physical energy, stamina, and physical strength. Clear quartz such as this, is associated with the crown chakra, but also works effectively to balance and energize all chakras.

RUDRAKSHA - The word ‘rudraksha’ is two Sanskrit words ‘Rudra’, a synonym for Lord Shiva, and ‘aksha’, meaning "eyes". The botanical name of the plant is 'ELAEOCARPUS GRANITRUS'. These trees grow only in the peaks of Himalayas of India and Nepal.

As Shiva's third eye, it is said that the seed pods of Rudraksha contains the secrets of the entire evolution of the cosmos within it. read on... science has caught up with that.

When a person has traumatic shock or just plain bad habits, the body picks up samskaras. When regularly wearing Rudraksha, it becomes part of body and the seed begins the healing of these samskaras by its natural electromagnetic properities. Generally after 40 days of wearing, one can feel the the changes in him or herself and attitude towards life but some changes are observed immediately. Rudraksha brings grace in life.

The Rudraksha bead is a seed pod and being organic, varies in size. The beading hole running through it occurs naturally. Each seed pod forms up to 21 vertical lines running down its surface, like the longitude lines on a globe or sections of an orange. Each section contains a tiny seed inside of this Rudraksha pod. It is the whole pod with its sections that is the natural, Sacred Rudraksha bead. These sections are known as mukhi, or faces (facets), and are integral natural formations of the pod. The Rudrakshas with rare larger number of mukhi are on the market in the several hundreds of dollars with or without any setting for wearing it – they are available as remedy for astrological influences as per recommended by a professional Vedic Jyotish Astrologer.
the pods in this piece are all ekh-mukhi or single faceted and are actually quite difficult to find and expensive when you do find - they are considered of universal support for all beings.

Rudraksha interacts with sentient beings by keeping it close to the skin - the natural process of positive impaction on central nervous system when connecting with nature’s healing properties bringing balance in physiology. Constant contact with Rudraksha brings one to Alpha state of mind - a state where the heart beat, breathing, blood circulation, function of endocrine glands, activity of neurons & neurotransmitters are normalized. The Rudraksha can help balance the vital chakras of the human body. Ancient Indian medical texts state that the Rudraksha prevents aging and can prolong life.

Researches have shown that Rudraksha beads have electromagnetic and accupressural property known as Piezoelectricity. A piezoelectric material when subjected to electric potential undergoes reformation in molecular level and develops a charge equal in potential but opposite in polarity. There is a constant bio-electrical field developed throughout the body.

On seeing such miraculous results by just wearing Rudraksha beads, Hindus in the Himalayas in India and Nepal began worship of Rudraksha seed pods as sacred and fashioned them into beads to be used for Japa Mala which after prayers are chanted are worn. Yogis since ancient times are capable of spectacular ability of mind control and control of voluntary & involuntary mechanisms of the body. Many attribute this power to Rudraksha beads to a major extent.

The Rudraksha has a very long lifespan. A properly cared for Rudraksha necklace or mala or bead can be passed along to eight generations as a family heirloom.
