The Mulah Mala
What is a Mulah Mala?
In the urban dictionary means ‘money’ or a slang term commonly used for ‘money’.
Mala is a set of Buddhist Prayer Beads or a rosary that Buddhists use to keep track of their mantras without being distracted to count. Read more here from Wiki. This Mala was handmade by Sherry Falsetta who has been an amazing supporter.
The Mulah Mala is a fun and honorary way to acknowledge the generosity of our local Yoga studios.
The Top Fundraising Studio will proudly house and display the Mulah Mala and inside the new (2015 addition) Trophy Cup until the following Yoga 4 Hope! The Mulah Mala is displayed during the Yoga 4 Hope event and then later is presented on to the next qualifying top fundraising studio in a sacred Mulah Mala Ceremony.

The details of this scared Mulah Mala Ceremony are so sacred and so secret, unfortunately, we cannot share it here.
About the Mala
The Mala is made of 54 Azurite Beads and 54 Lava Stones, a total of 108 as in a traditional Tibetan Mala. It weighs in at just 1/2 ounce under two pounds and is 36 inches long from top to end of the 5 tassels.
Azurite is called the “Stone of Heaven.”
It aids in developing psychic awareness, psychic skills and abilities, enhances intuition and is said to guide you to be accurate in depicting psychic experiences. It is also an excellent stone for meditation, allowing you to enter a meditative state easily. It can enhance prophesy and divination.
Azurite is said to help control energy flow and bring just the right amount of energy to any situation.
Physically, Azurite is professed by folklore to be helpful for: healing in general, cancer prevention, liver issues, arthritis, joint problems, depression, sinuses and skin problems.
Azurite is most closely related to the third eye Chakra and can balance, stimulate and empower it. It will also work to align all of the Chakras.
Lava – born of fire, lava burns away sickness and negativity.

- Raise as much money in pledges, sales, donations and fundraisers so that total money raised is more than any other yoga studio.
