This is my second mala and overall I am delighted with these lovely items. Shipping was prompt and the beads feel so lovely in my hands. I was a little surprised that these beads are just a tiny bit smaller than my first one, but I was really expecting the colors to be more vibrant as pictured. My beads are more ethereal--a different take on light? Perhaps that is what I need. Someone else had mentioned using hers for chakra balancing which had set this idea up in my head, but my Dipika will be used to help define my own inner light. When I showed them to my daughter, after having carried them in my pocket all morning, she was surprised at how very warm the beads were, so I guess they are starting to pick up my energy. Still new to all this, but what gorgeous tools to learn with!
Thanks for your feedback Rosanne - so happy you love your Mala!
