108 Bead Dark Raktu Prayer Mala

6 Reviews   |  

This simple prayer bead mala features 108 dark and oiled raktu seed beads that are hand strung on durable knotting cord.  It is the perfect mala for meditation practice and every day wear.  With meaning similar to the bodhi seed, many practitioners use raktu malas for their essence and inherent teachings of enlightenment within each seed.

These mala beads are great if you like a natural seed bead in a smaller size.  Seed malas are some of the most common malas used in Tibet and Nepal.  These seeds are sustainable and are harvested each year then drilled and made into mala beads. 

Mala measures approximately 23-27 inches around depending on the bead size.  Beads are about 6-8mm.  Made in Nepal.

Simple but Beautiful

This piece called out my name. I wanted something to remind me of my agreement with GOD. Something simple. I have been stopped by many people to compliment my beads. I guess they felt the same way I did. It is so simple that it is just beautiful.

I love the darker seeds! They are just a bit larger than the malas I have with the lighter ones, which is an added benefit that makes handling and using them a bit easier for me. As with all Dharma Shop products, this is of the highest quality and is simply beautiful!

Beautiful meditation mala

I am using these to meditate with and it is a wonderful piece of artistry. It is light to hold and the texture of the beads is a nice grounding piece during the meditation. The color is deep and the seeds have an authentic feel that helps with the mindfulness of my practice. It allows me to stay in the moment very peacefully during my meditation. I very much enjoy the space that I am in when these are in my hands. Namaste
