Dear friends..

A Japa mala ( beaded necklace) is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists, usually made from 108 beads, though other numbers, usually divisible by nine are also used. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This practice is known in Sanskrit as japa.

Within Hindu traditions Vaishnava devotees commonly chant on beads made from the Tulsi plant (Holy Basil), held as a sacred manifestation of Tulsidevi; whereas Shaivites use Rudraksha beads. The number of beads in the japa mala is generally 108, which has great significance in both traditions. The bead string has one big bead called the Meru. During japa, the bead string is held in the right hand and one bead is moved after each mantra is repeated. The bead movement starts with the first bead after the Meru (aka Guru bead) and ends in the Meru/Guru signifying the end of one cycle (108) of japa. It is not uncommon for people to wear japa beads around their neck, although some practitioners prefer to carry them in a bead-bag in order to keep them clean.

does wearing this mala for the whole day ,will increase our psychic power? if we didn't chant the mantras but, simply wore it for the whole day..,does it has to do something with our psychic powers?alt text

It is all permission slips. It is something that if u believe in hard enuff, it WILL help you. It is like anything. Crystals do hold energy, but even that is a permission slip. It is a way to manifest a situation that sees u having worth to be more psychic. It is all inside of us, we just have to grab hold of KNOWING, we are ALL worth it and whatever we wish to do, we love it, and live it, and we WILL have it. Hope that helped

love n light

I am not too sure if it increases psychic powers as such but I have benefits from wearing mine. It could be because it is made of malachite which is a lovely looking crystal by the way, I use it to say an affirmation the 108 times before I meditate and I find that it is like a transition from being alert to calming my mind down in preparation to meditate in silence. Peace :)

No worries, you can find some great ones on ebay. Perhaps look for an amethyst one or maybe labradorite.
