Everything you need to know about MoksaMalas and your new mala.

Hi, my name is Karissa. I am a dog lover and a recently took the plunge and became a full time yoga instructor.

I’ve been practicing yoga for the last nine years but have always struggled with meditation. I made my first mala as a tool to help me with meditation and found that it was actually a very relaxing and meditative practice in itself.

I love sharing my knowledge of yoga to help others as I have grown so much from the practice myself. Making malas is another way I hope to touch others and assist them in their practice.
************************************************************************************************
Malas for a CAWS:

Moksa Malas is partnered with CAWS, “a no-kill, volunteer and foster-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is working with the community to help animals.” CAWS takes hard to adopt animals out of shelters and places them in volunteer based foster homes. This allows the foster parents to learn more about the animals to help find them their forever homes.

I chose CAWS as a partner because I personally have had two wonderful adoption experiences with them. I adopted two dogs from CAWS, Lela and Kaiya from CAWS. While Kaiya is no longer with us, Lela and I are going on 6.5 years together. Lela has been my rock though so many things in my life, I truly don’t know what I would do without her or my other fur baby Cooper.

For the Month of July I'll be donating 25% of my Etsy sale proceds to CAWS. AfterJuly, 10% of the shops proceeds will goto support CAWS.

All About Malas:

What is a mala?
Malas are meditation or prayer necklaces typically made of 108 beads plus a guru bead. They are used as a tool in mediation to keep count during meditations that include mantras. Keeping count also helps focus your mind on your meditation practice. Malas can also be worn around your neck or wrist as a reminder of the intention you infused it with.

Why 108?
There are many explanations for why there are 108 beads on a mala. First, there’s said to be 108 energy lines in the body coming together at the heart chakra. 108 is also a scared number in many religious beliefs. In the Upanishads, 1 represents the higher truth, 0 the spiritual practice and 8 represents infinity or eternity. There are also 108 beads on a rosary. Another explanation lies in the Sanskrit language. There are 54 letters in the Sanskrit alphabet, each with a masculine and feminine form equaling 108.

How do I choose mala?
If you know what healing energy you want your mala to have I would suggest choosing beads with associated healing properties. If not, maybe you like the colors, the design or the artist who made it. At the end of the day, what's important is that in some way, you are drawn to the mala you're going to wear and/or meditate with.

How do I care for my mala?
Store your mala in it’s included mala bag when not in use. Please do not bathe, swim or sleep with your mala or bracelets.
Please gently slide your bracelets on and off and avoid excess stretching as the string can break.

How do I cleanse my mala?
To cleanse your mala you may carefully smudge (burn sage near) it. Or you may leave it in moonlight over night during a full moon. Please do not leave mala outside if there is any chance of rain.
