The Purple Meditation Set includes a mala necklace, a bodhi leaf print, and incense.
This one-of-a-kind necklace features a unique take on the traditional mala. The necklace has 108 wooden beads. A purple yarn is hand-knotted between each bead. The tassel is purple to match the final beads. There are two threads: a stranded thread and a few strings of the yarn the beads are strung with. The beads come from a local Buddhist temple here in Myanmar, called Mahamuni Temple.
*Just so you know: This mala has a larger purple knot between beads number 54 and 55
108 8mm beads (+ guru bead)
Extra-long length at 44″
Malas are perfect for meditation and spiritual practices, but can also be worn as an accessory. They hold their significance when worn outside of spiritual practices.
Bodhi Leaf Print
This leaf comes from a large Bodhi Tree near a canal here in Mandalay. I skeleton-ized the leaf so that all that remains are the veins and the outlines of the leaf’s structure. It is matted onto an off-white paper, layered onto maroon paper and a mustard-yellow canvas.
*Just so you know: This particular leaf is flawed- there are a couple of small holes in the vein structure near the left side and center of the leaf as you can see in the first and fourth photos
30 small incense mounds are also included to complete the set so you are meditation-ready.
