The Meaning Of Namaste
I have always loved the greeting used in one of my Favourite countries, Nepal.
(and many other countries)
it is a sign of great respect Said with hands pressed together in front of the heart followed with a bow.
It is used as both a written and spoken greeting also a goodbye.
In a more “spiritual” sense, “Namaste” is also non-verbally saying “I honor the place you occupy in the Universe. I honor you with love, wisdom and peace.”
The term Mala is derived from the, Sanskrit: माला; mālā, meaning 'garland' in which a string of beads is used for prayer and or meditation. These have been used by Buddhists and those with spiritual aspirations for thousands of years. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads and it is said that Yogis and Buddhists were the first to use a Mala to enhance their spiritual practices. Also called Yoga beads, a Mala is used to keep count while repeating a “Japa” which is a spiritual discipline involving the meditative repetition of a mantra or a Devine name. They Can be worn everyday around the neck or wrist to remind yourself to be mindful. Malas can be made of various different beads and gemstones and just like a Malas means more than it appears, each of the different stones have different meanings and properties. I find most people choose their special Mala by finding the one that they are most drawn to.
I hope you enjoy wearing and using your Mala as much as I enjoy making them.
