Hara - Amritapuri Rudraksha Necklace

“Your heart is the temple where God should be enshrined. Your good thoughts are the flowers— your good words, the hymns—your good deeds are the rituals. And love is the offering.”  —Amma

‘Hara’ (pronounced “HAA-rah”) is Sanskrit for ‘destroyer’ (of ignorance, etc.) and, along with ‘Rudra’, is also a name for Shiva, whose tears of compassion for humanity were said to fall upon Earth, becoming the seeds that grew Rudraksha trees. Nurtured with love, the large, sacred Rudraksha bead in our Hara necklace, is imbued with the powerful vibrations of Amritapuri Ashram-grown Rudraksha trees. This main bead is beautifully framed on each side by a smaller Rudraksha bead, silver caps, a series of Red Sandalwood beads, and silver beads. The necklace also features a hand-knotted design on an adjustable cord, for easy wear in a loose choker style. 

Wearing Rudraksha beads can help one in attaining tranquility, peace of mind, focus and concentration. Rudraksha beads are also known to be good for creating your own cocoon of energy, acting as a protective shield from negative energies. Especially helpful during this time.

CARE:  The Rudraksha and Red Sandalwood beads will gradually darken as they interact with natural skin oils, and the Rudraksha beads may also require periodic cleaning. To clean Rudraksha beads, first soak them in warm, soapy water overnight. Then scrub thoroughly with an extra-soft toothbrush, and allow to dry. Any tarnish on the silver beads and caps can be polished with a soft polishing cloth.
