Pure tulasi neckbeads, 17 inches in length (one strand around the neck) with medium sized, round beads. The tulasi beads are strung on tough nylon monofilament thread, with a brass screwing clasp. This mala is for wearing on the neck (not for japa).
Tulasi (often referred to as "sacred basil") is the most sacred of woods used in Hindu worship. The wood is so sacred that it is considered to possess divinity itself. Malas made of tulasi wood are the most suitable for meditation and japa. Vaishnavas (devotees of Vishnu, Rama, Krishna, etc.) wear the sacred tulasi mala on their necks as a sign of their devotion to the Lord.
Tulasi clears the aura and helps to balance vata and kapha doshas. Chanting mantras of Vishnu on a tulasi mala increases the spiritual power of one's prayer and devotion.
We sell only 100% pure authentic tulasi malas of the highest grade. Be very careful of duplicates when purchasing sphatika, rudraksha and tulasi malas.
