Mala of the Month™ for July

Summer is an ideal time for spiritual purification through the yogic practice of tapas. Tapas is doing something you do not want to do or not doing something you want to do that will have a positive effect on your life and/or spiritual development. When our will conflicts with the desire of our mind an internal “fire” is created which illuminates and burns up our mental and physical impurities. This inner fire can also be used as a source of spiritual energy; the yogis say the sole practice of Tapas can lead to the release of kundalini and attainment of enlightenment.

Tapas is a tool for transformation and should be approached with an attitude of passion and zeal rather than of self-denial and chastisement. “Genuine tapas makes us shine like the sun,” says Georg Feuerstein. “Then we can be a source of warmth and strength for others.”

Our Black Onyx and Bone Malas will support the process and practice of tapas. Black onyx helps eliminate negative thinking and increases willpower to change habits. This strengthening stone increases concentration levels and aids absentmindedness. Bone signifies strength and is said to amplify prana (life force energy.)

The best mantra to support the practice of tapas is:
Om Namah Shivaya
Translation: Om and salutations to Shiva, the bestower of inner strength, fearlessness, consciousness and detachment.

For the month of July our Black Onyx and Bone Malas are on sale for 20% off our regular price with coupon code: MOTM-51J
