The Shailaputri clasped bracelet, part of the Navratri Collection, is 7.5 inches around the wrist, made with sparkling Garnet gemstones imported from India, a golden Crescent Moon, a Lion & an Om.
Maa Shailaputri is the goddess of the Muladhara Chakra or Root Chakra. Upon awakening this Shakti, one begins their spiritual journey and discovers their purpose in life. Devi Shailaputri is sought for higher depths in yogic meditation The Root Chakra, denoted by I Am, makes us grounded and secure, both physically and emotionally.
The Garnet gemstone represents Devi Shailaputri, the Sun️ and the Root Chakra.
Garnet grounds the kundalini energy within the body.
The Navraatri Collection was intuitively inspired by the Nav (Nine) Durga Devi’s, an aspect of the Adi Shakti in Hinduism. Nav Durga Devi is the Kundalini energy in the human body, which is activated through meditation and chanting practices.
The Nine Devi’s are associated with the 7 Chakras of the body as well as the Earth Star and Soul Star Chakras. Each bracelet was created to symbolize one of the 9 Devi’s and the related Chakra or energy center that she resides in. Utilizing these bracelets made with the 9 different types of gemstones enables one to lead the Kundalini or life force energy in the body from the Root Chakra all the way up to the Soul Star Chakra.
In addition to gemstones, the bracelets are made with a golden Crescent Moon, a Lion and an Om. The Crescent Moon represents Shakti’s divine consort, Lord Shiva. Shakti is mostly seen with a Lion by her side, so we used the Lion to represent her valor and determination in the battle between good and evil. The Om is the primordial sound of creation, is used at the beginning of any mantra, and is a symbol of Hinduism.
Navraatri in Sanksrit means nine nights and every Fall, Hindus venerate Shakti Durga. The warrior Goddess Durga is honored with prayers, chanting, offerings of food, sweets, flowers and clothing. It is believed that this ten-armed Goddess battled and emerged victorious against Mahisasura (the buffalo demon), and restored Dharma (righteousness) in the world. Navratri celebrates the ultimate battle and victory of Good over Evil wherever it is remembered in the world.
