Shanti Mala Collection

The sanskrit term shanti specifically refers to a state of inner rather than outer peace. While we may be faced with challenges that require our outward form to express negativity, anger and be confrontational, the goal of a yoga practice is to keep our inner self in a state of calm and our minds at peace. 

The mantra “Om Shanti Shanti Shanti” is said to repeat this word 3 times to first, cleans and purify the body of suffering. Second, to relieve the mind of negative feelings and worries. And the third time,  to connect one  with their higher self.

The malas in this collection are designed by Ritual Gems and handcrafted by a select group of women artisans in India.  Your support helps provide jobs for these women who otherwise may not have the opportunity to work and help support themselves and their families.
