A beautiful string of gemstones, this astrological mala is used to help harmonize planetary influences and neutralize any negative planetary forces. Each stone represents one of the nine major planets, and overall it contains 54 beads strung on a metal wire. The beads are smaller and more delicate than the other malas and are approximately 4mm in diameter.
Malas are often worn for purification, for protection, and for uplifting the mind, body, and spirit. They are also symbols of the never-ending cycle of creation and are beloved of many deities.
"Complete freedom from the bondage of mind and ego will create a flow of love within. People are bound by the past and the future; that is why it so difficult to find true love in the world. In order to really be able to love, both the past and the future must dissolve and disappear." - Amma
