men's prosperity and new beginnings mala bracelet, made with grade a+ matte black onyx, Tibetan lotus seed, and our original eight armed Ganesha charm. the lotus seed carries many meanings, as it grows in the most unlikely and difficult environments. ultimately, it is a symbol of the many petaled lotus of the crown chakra, awakening to the perfection of self, and serves as a reminder of love, compassion, and true wisdom. the lotus seed is said to enhance spiritual and material prosperity, and multiply the effects of spiritual practices. they increase one’s devotion, peace of mind, inner beauty, and attract tremendous cosmic radiance. physically, they are believed to be cooling and reduce pitta imbalances in the body.
matte black onyx is associated primarily with the root chakra. it assists with challenges in life, especially those caused by a drain of energy. it prevents the draining away of personal energy and can be used for protection from such. it is excellent for grounding, controlling, or eliminating excess or unwanted energies, and has been used for wound healing and to increase stamina and self-control.
ganesha is one of the most widely known and worshipped deities in the hindu tradition. he is revered as the remover of obstacles and more generally as the lord of beginnings, patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom.
