“Life becomes fulfilled when humankind and Nature move hand in hand, in harmony.”
‘Tulsi Devi’ is viewed as a goddess in the form of the sacred tulsi (holy basil) plant. The natural, unpolished tulsi beads in our exquisite 108-bead Tulsi & Amazonite Mala are made directly from tulsi plant wood and interspersed with beautiful, multi-hued amazonite gemstone beads. Every bead is lovingly hand-knotted, and the mala necklace is further enhanced by decorative silver beads and an opulent, oval-shaped amazonite pendant. The lightness of the tulsi beads is gently balanced by the weight of the amazonite gems, making this mala easy to use and carry with you for mantra and meditation practices. The mala can also double as an elegant necklace for your jewelry collection.
The tulsi plant (also known as ‘tulasi’) is regarded as the holiest of all plants and an embodiment of the Divine Mother on Earth. Out of compassion, the tulsi plant offers her entire being for worship and for medicinal use—through her leaves, flowers and seeds. Her body, as plant wood, is crafted into sacred beads for chanting the names of God. Tulsi beads are known to be very healing and can potentially help whoever wears them with more balanced health, peace of mind and reduced stress.
CARE: Please remove your mala before entering water. To clean your mala, gently wipe the beads using a damp cloth and let air dry. You can also refresh the tulsi beads with a touch of almond, jojoba or sesame oil, but avoid getting oils or lotions on the gemstone beads or tassel. The mala tassel can be carefully washed in cold water, and gently combed to straighten. Avoid hanging in sun, as sunlight can cause gemstones to fade over time.
Note: We recommend storing your mala in one of our sacred japa mala prayer pouches, made from Amma-blessed prasad sari pieces, sold separately.
