Lotus Mala (Kamal Gatte): Significance, Meaning, Uses and Benefits

Lotus is a symbol of growth, as it blossoms stunningly even in the most unlikely, difficult environments, and is a metaphor for our own growth. Being a symbol of growth, a lotus contains the ability to overcome obstacles on the path to attainment of purified consciousness. It grows in the mud and yet it is known for peace, beauty and purity. Just like the flower, the lotus seeds have different connotations according to different cultures and religions. According to Vedic scriptures, the lotus is associated with beauty, fertility, prosperity, spirituality and eternity. It represents the divine energy of Goddesses Lakshmi who sits on the lotus. Chanting on the lotus bead mala energizes your Hrit Padma Chakra which is the personal abode of Goddess Lakshmi. It is believed that this mala is powerful enough to raise you prosperously as lotus blooms in the undesirable mud. Spiritual Significance: Wearing lotus seeds promotes a spiritual sense in us although we may not experience or realize it initially. It reminds us to maintain peace and purity through all obstacles and distractions throughout the day and life journey in general. One should chant any mantra on the lotus mala early in the morning. It is one of the best meditation practices in the world. If you focus on specific goals or struggle to find inner peace from external distractions then lotus seeds are perfect for you. Malas made of lotus can be used for meditation practice to count breaths or mantra repetitions. Neck malas have 108 beads and a 'head bead' to indicate the end and beginning of each 108-bead count. The number of beads signifies the 108 worldly sins in the Buddhist tradition or as a multiple of '9' in the Hindu tradition. This number is also significant in many other religions. Each type of bead has its own significance.
