Malas and Sacred Adornment Project Handmade with Love. All proceeds go back into the local community.
The Mala and Sacred Adornment Project started as a Karma project while I was doing my Dharma Yoga teacher training in New York. The idea was to find a way to help serve and spread Dharma Mittra's teachings.
I remember spending most of my childhood watching my dad hand craft pieces of jewelry and watching my mom hand string and knot pearl necklaces. I could watch them for hours. I never did anything like they did but this project brought me back to that time of my childhood, filled with joy and curiosity!
In 2015, my dad and I worked together to create the Dharma Yoga pendant. We (well mostly my dad) used a piece of Dharma's artwork to make a mold to cast the pendants in silver. We carefully selected seeds and precious stones to make these malas.
Each bead is chanted with the sacred sound of OM as is it strung. Each bead is hand knotted on a nylon thread. Each mala has a different intention and energies from the combination of precious stone they are made up of.
When you purchase one of these pieces the profits go back to the local community through various charities. The Malas in New York will go to an animal charity and start a scholarship funds for Dharma Yoga TT. If you are interested in getting a custom Mala, I would be happy to make one just for you. All you need to think about is the site of bead (length of Mala) and stones (or colours or intentions you are interested in manifesting). The malas cost $50+ depending on the materials (some stones like aquamarine are more expensive than others).
I am happy to share this project with all of you and hope that I can help you with any similar Karma Projects. Contact me, if you are interested in starting your own Sacred Adornment Project to support the cause/charity you love. Send me a design or idea and we can make a pendant/charm to raise funds for the cause you love.
So happy to share this project with all of you.
OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti. OM Peace, Peace, Peace.
