Sandalwood Mala - 108 Prayer Beads - Prayer for Lord Ganesha
Mantra: Om Gam Ganapataye Namah
Ganesha, the wise elephant-headed god is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Also called "Ganapataye," he is the remover of obstacles and Lord of Wisdom and Intellect. His name is invoked at the start of every new endeavor, ritual or ceremony. Kundalini Yoga teaches that Ganesha has his permanent abode in the Muladhara Chakra, the base energetic center within every human being.
The mala is a sacred string of prayer beads blessed with mantras that spiritual aspirants use in a practice called "japa". Each mala has the auspicious number of 108 beads plus the untouched Sumeru bead, which are made from natural materials capable of carrying energetic vibrations. Japa is a type of communication between 'here' and 'beyond', between the part and the Whole. As in all types of communication, it cannot be the mumbling of empty words, it cannot be a mechanical or robotic repetition, but it must express an authentic and sincere intention. The mantra should be recited with the highest attention and deeply interiorized.
All malas are knotted in between the beads. These prayer beads now come in new, attractive cases specifically designed to protect and seal their spiritual energy. Each encasement is decorated with the Divine form to which the mala is connected, and comes with information on the beads and their ideal mantra. Fortify and beautify your spiritual practice with these prayer malas made of precious stone, and auspicious wood.
