This mala is named after Gorakshanatha, he is said to be the founder of Hatha Yoga, the yoga most popular today. He flourished in the 11th Century as the leader of a group of Yogis called Kanphata that still roams the Himalayas and other parts of Northern India. His image shows Shiva’s trident, hinting at the Shaivite background of Hatha Yoga, but also prayer beads around his neck and sometimes a book, that symbolize learning and concentration.This mala bead necklace is traditionally used as a tool for mantra chanting and meditation and contains Black Tourmaline and Labradorite. Today we also wear them as yoga jewellery and healing jewellery. Each crystal bead in this mala has metaphysical therapeutic qualities that benefit the wearer.
