This 108 bead rudraksha mala is knotted on a red or orange cord with a red, orange or yellow tassel. Malas made of rudraksha beads are considered auspicious as well as powerful, and are supposed to have profound astrological and health benefits. It is a significant meditation tool to enhance spiritual practice, as it reminds to repeat the mantra thereby reinforcing the mind-body tuning.
Yet another significant aspect of rudraksha is that it is a favorite of Lord Shiva. A mala is a string of beads, used like a rosary, to facilitate concentration on a mantra.
