Nepali Rudraksha Mala (Silver, 108 beads)
This single-strand rudraksha neck mālā has 108 small rudraksha beads plus one central double-capped bead, on silver wire. The beads measure about 6.5-7 mm and the mala is approximately 54 inches long.
The beads in a rudraksha mālā vary depending on the size of the rudraksha beads. Traditionally, for sacred jewellery, 108 beads are strung into a mālā with an extra ‘guru’ bead to indicate the beginning or end of a round of repetition. The number 108 is an auspicious number, especially for mantra repetitions.

This is a ‘panchmukhi’ rudraksha meaning it has five facets or faces.

The panchmukhi rudraksha can be worn by anyone above the age of 14 and bestows upon the wearer purity of thoughts, inner peace, intellectual growth, mindfulness and enhanced memory.
