The seeds are said to have a cooling effect on the mind and body, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. They are also believed to have the power to purify the mind and soul, as well as to increase focus and concentration.
Another traditional benefit of using mala beads is the power of the mantras that are recited during meditation or prayer, recitation of mantras, such as "Om Namah Shivaya," can purify the mind and bring about a sense of peace and well-being. The repetition of the mantra on the beads helps to keep the mind focused to go deep during meditation.
