The Eight Auspicious Symbols (Collection)

In Tibetan Buddhist Tradition, the set of ‘Eight Auspicious Symbols’ is the most popular. In Sanskrit they are known as Ashtamangala, ashta meaning ‘eight’ and mangala meaning ‘auspicious.’ In Tibetan they are known as Tashee-Tag-Gyay , tashee means ‘auspicious’, tag means ‘sign or symbol,’ and gyay means ‘eight.’

The ‘Eight Auspicious Symbols’ of good fortune represent the offerings presented by the great Vedic gods to Shakyamuni Buddha upon his attainment of enlightenment.

The tassel on this mala is made from recycled old sari silk. It is a fair trade product, providing jobs for women in India and Nepal. The unique shades and textures vary slightly exemplifying the rich colors and history of the region and, because it's recycled, it helps the planet. It gives us a peek into an exotic, rich culture full of texture and color.

Turquoise is the ultimate stone of protection. It balances and realigns the entire cellular structure. It is the stone of the throat chakra promoting communication, peace of mind and creative expression. Turquoise is the one of the official birth stones for the month of December.

Sandalwood is the name of a class of fragrant woods from trees in the genus Santalum. The woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained, and unlike many other aromatic woods, they retain their fragrance for decades. ***Write your wish on a chip of sandalwood and burn in cauldron. As it burns it sets the magic flowing. Sandalwood beads are protective and promote spiritual awareness.

All malas are packaged safely and beautifully in a natural muslin pouch perfect for gift giving, or great storage for you! You will also receive a description of the Gemstones, their metaphysical properties, a letter of care, and a special mantra to get you started on your journey.

**MIND, BODY, SPIRIT COLLECTION"
Naked Planet Jewelry is designed to balance the body using the healing properties of gemstones and crystals. For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have utilized the power of crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thus facilitating the free flow of prana (energy) throughout the body. On a cellular level, our bodies and gemstones are both made up of mineral silicon-dioxide. Therefore,we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When crystals are placed directly on your body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the crystal to you. Each gemstone energy serves as a tool to help heal, protect and reduce stress in our mind, body and spirit.

WHAT ARE MALA BEADS?
A Japa mala or mala in (Sanskrit:माला) mālā, means garland. It is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists. Malas are used for keeping count while meditating, reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name of a deity. This practice is known in Sanskrit as japa. Malas are used to support Dharana (Sanskrit: धारणा) means concentration, introspective focus and one-pointedness of mind, it is the six limb of Patanjali's 8 limb path of yoga. Dhyana (Sanskrit: ध्यान) literally means "contemplation, reflection" and "profound, abstract meditation". Dhyana is contemplating, reflecting on whatever Dharana has focussed on. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads. My mala beads are finished with a tassel, or two hanging beads or bracelet style with the guru bead finished sideways for ease to wear as a bracelet.

I mindfully hand knotted all my mala necklaces reciting a mantra as a blessing to increase their vibration. They are cleansed with Palo Santo which is a sacred wood related to Frankincense and Myrrh. Palo Santo purifies, cleanses and banishes misfortune and evil spirits, therefore. It is considered a "holy wood" and a sacred wood of prayer.

I pride my work with attention to detail, color, design and craftsmanship. My Malas are cleansed with Palo Santo then carefully wrapped in paper and a muslin pouch. A card with the metaphysical meanings of each stone is included along with instructions on how to meditate and take proper care of your mala as well as a special mantra card.
