When do you start the long journey into yourself?
1. Choose a spot and sit comfortably with your spine straight and your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths to center and align yourself with your intention.
2. Choose a mantra for your practice, chanting aloud or silently.
3. Hold your mala in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the guru bead, use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra. Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again reach the guru bead.
If you want to continue the meditation, instead of passing over the guru bead, simply reverse direction and begin again.
4. Don't be harsh to yourself if thoughts arise or if you drift away ... Happens to everyone.... collect yourself again, refocus and start again that is part of the journey too
Our dainty Mahi mala 'Sacred Lotus collection' is online .
The sacred Lotus Padma is associated with purity, eternity and beauty. Breaking through the surface of the muddy pond every morning, totally unspoilt, symbolises the desire of spiritual enlightenment and to be awakened. The open pedals symbolise the unfolding of the divine truth, the unwavering faith within ourselves. The Padma has the gift to resurrect itself coming back as pure as the beginning with unfolded pedals as the expansion of the soul.
