Shri - Tulsi & Gems Tassel Mala


“Life becomes fulfilled when humankind and Nature move hand in hand, in harmony.” 

The tulsi (holy basil) plant with green leaves is called ‘Shri’, which means ‘the fortunate one’ and is another name for the goddess Lakshmi. The natural, unpolished tulsi beads in our stunning 108-bead Shri Tulsi & Gems Tassel Mala are made directly from tulsi plant wood. The tulsi beads are featured with a gorgeous, hand-knotted arrangement of healing gemstones (listed by color name) and a vibrant silk tassel. The lightness of the tulsi beads makes this mala necklace easy to carry and use for mantra and meditation practices. 

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 the Tulsi & Gems Tassel 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 prasad sari pieces, sold separately.
