If you’ve checked out our Mala Prayer Instagram lately, you’ve likely seen our new collection of stunning mindfulness Sanskrit necklaces. They aren’t mala beads but they’re definitely just as amazing for your yoga style and mindful intentions. That’s not to mention that they’re also the perfect size to be used as a stocking stuffer. Exciting, right? So, we won’t waste any more of your time. Let’s see what’s in store for your stocking and mindful aspirations.
Take one look at any of our Sanskrit necklaces and you’ll fall in love. They’re exceptionally chic and unique – two things every woman enjoys. However, the beauty of these necklaces go far beyond what meets the eye – that fancy font isn’t just some scribbles.
In fact, the “fancy font” is actually a mindful message written in Sanskrit. But what is Sanskrit, you ask? Sanskrit is a sacred language of various Buddhist and Hindu traditions. It was often used to worship the temples, as people chanted in Sanskrit while meditating.
So, to put it simply, Sanskrit is the historic, authentic language of mindfulness and meditation.
Now, let’s get into the various Sanskrit stocking stuffers you’ll want to find on Christmas morning. All of our Sanskrit necklaces come in silver plated, 14K gold plated and 14K rose gold plated, allowing you to get the style that truly represents your idea of beautiful mindfulness.
Our Ahimsa Sanskrit Necklace translates to the English word, compassion. The cool thing is that it can mean compassion towards oneself or compassion to others, making it a wonderful stocking stuffer gift idea to give and to receive. This Sanskrit necklace also represents total and complete absence of violence within the mind, body and spirit - being compassionate with your mind body and spirit.
Our beautiful Niyama Sanskrit Necklace translates to the English word, positivity. So, it’s definitely a must-have piece of mindful jewelry for everyone, especially with the winter blues fast approaching.
To break the Sanskrit down a bit more, Niyama can mean positive duties or observances. The Sanskrit Necklace represents the eight-limbed path every yogi takes, as outlined by Patanjali. The path consists of five Niyamas – purification, contentment, willpower, study of self, acceptance of the world and devotion.
The Om Sanskrit Necklace is as traditional as it gets. “Om” is one of the most common mantras used throughout meditation. It’s a sacred sound that can be the representation of everything and anything. Om can mean and be whatever you want it to be, which is why it’s so commonly used within meditative chants. It’s the root all creation.
If you don’t know what Namaste is, it’s time to practice more yoga! Namaste is the most common spiritual greeting used to say hello or goodbye. In English, Namaste means “I bow to you”, and is often done with, of course, a bow. This gesture is believed to create a unique connection between the individuals greeting one another, as it allows oneself to open up the heart chakra to the other. The gesture is also an acknowledgment of connecting your soul with another. So, to say it’s simply a spiritual greeting would be an understatement. It goes much deeper than that and the true meaning is absolutely beautiful.
The Bhakti Sanskrit Necklace is definitely one of the most beautiful messages around. When translated to English, Bhakti means devotion. It holds the true power and beauty to loyalty, faithfulness, surrender and attachment. It’s about being loyal and emotionally connected to someone else, whether it’s to your faith, your spouse, your best friend, someone you admire – anyone. So, this is definitely an amazing stocking stuffer idea to give and to receive this holiday season.
You simply can’t go wrong with the Prana Sanskrit Necklace, especially if you’re practicing yoga and meditation or at the very least, someone who places high importance on breathing. In English, Prana means to breathe – something we can all relate to, as breathing is the key to diving deeper into your yoga practice, meditation and mindfulness.
However, this Sanskrit goes beyond that. It’s about using your breath as a life force, source of energy and as the vital principle to manifesting positive energy in the universe.
For anyone looking for an extra dose of profound knowledge this holiday season, the Prajna Sanskrit Necklace definitely needs to be on your wish list. Prajna is used to describe the acceptance of change and the acceptance of letting things be as they are. It’s about going with the flow of life and freeing yourself from life’s stress. It’s about simplicity and purity – letting the cards fall as they may.
At first glance, you might think the Sanskrit necklaces are a collection of weird fonts but now you know that the beauty goes far beyond what meets the eyes. Every Sanskrit necklace holds a meaning that helps guide you towards the intentions and energies you want to channel. You can wear the Sanskrit as a stunning piece of mindful jewelry or as a reminder of what you wish to achieve in this lifestyle. It’s also a great way to remember what to do when you find yourself in difficult situations. Just look at your necklace and repeat the Sanskrit with every breath you take.
So, think about what you want out of this life and your yoga practice, and add these Sanskrit necklaces to your wish list by shopping at Mala Prayer today.
