SHARANAM is a word in Sanskrit (refined speech from vedic times) and means refuge , also in the intension of internalization.

Meditation with Mala and a Mantra, is called Japa . It is a very good starting point for focusing and concentration with easeness. Sing the mantra  in the beginning with sound, later you can repeat it silently.  In both cases you´ll experience  and internalize the qualtity the mantra embodies,  getting  closer to a steady stream of awareness and insight.

All you seek is inside – pure abundance and oneness, come in, you are expected.

If you´ll  just wear the malas and necklaces as a good friend you´ll have the chance of  learning from the stone qualities.

What I felt during making the mala, is written down for you. You can see it as an impuls, but you´ll also make your own experiences with them.

I am grateful  for making malas  and finding people who welcome them. Making the malas, leads me to growing awareness and love.
Sitting in a powerful circle of receiving  and sending out again.

I do have other creative fields also. As a mother, yoga teacher, and filmmaker I try my best. That´s why  the individual malas sometimes take up to four weeks to reach you. Therefore you can be sure, they are made with great regard.



SHARANAM  ist ein Sanskrit Wort ( Gelehrtensprache aus alter indischer Zeit ) Sharanam bedeutet so viel wie Zuflucht finden. Im Sinne von Verinnerlichung und tiefstem Vertrauen.

Meditation mit einer Mala ( Gebetskette , hier bei Sharanam-Mala  aus Halbedelsteinen mit bestimmten Eigenschaften)  & Mantra  (Anrufung/ Spruch/ Hymne) wird JAPA genannt und ist ein sehr hilfreiches Instrument , um den Geist auszurichten, zu focusieren, um Präsenz zu erfahren.

Wenn ich die Malas lege, bearbeite und knüpfe ist es auch eine Art Meditation und ich schreibe dir auf, was an Inforamtionen zur jeweiligen Mala kam.

Ich freue mich die Sharanam-Malas zu machen, denn es ist für mich Meditation & Erfahrungschule. Ich empfange und sende es weiter. Es ist ein stabilisieren, vertiefen und weiten von Bewusstsein.



Why meditate with a mala and mantra?

Mantra is a sanskrit word and means„ instrument of thought“ .  You´ll teach the mind to focus on one thing. Really focus – not beeing disturbed by any other „very important „ rash or recurring thought.

And !!! The mantra is a great helper in itself. The mantra awakes or reflects the qualities it embodies. It is a high frequenzy door opener to your soul and highest consciousness. With the mala in your hand, you´ll have a good friend which counts the minutes you sit, so that you can forget about time. And of course the stone spirits also like to be in touch with you. Tuning through your „bodies“, entering your heart with their special and helping informations.

It is a very old and tested practice to mediate with a mala. It is  for a lot of people much easier to calm down, find a good seat and focus.

 If you wear the mala during the day it keeps you aware of your path and qualities you feel good with.


 What materials are the mala beads made from?

I buy the beads from very good traders, which provide stones in really high quality, stones that are not irradiate or overworked to make them brighter. The quality of Sharanam Mala stones is very high, so that you can receive the pure tune of the stones.

The wooden/sead beads come from Indian Malas directly. I only use beads I feel good with. Even wooden beads have very different quatlities.

The quality of the beads depends on all the cicumstanzes under which they grew, „harvested“ and processed. I try my best to find even fair trade stones, but it ins´t that easy. I´ll keep you informed about this point.

When I make the malas I am chanting, listening to mantras, finding a connection … which also informs the beads with good energy. If I do a individual one for you, knowing what is your theme, it´s a connection to your personal field, bringing positive vibes, and light and what is needed.


How do I choose my Mala? 

First of all trust your intuition. Don´t question it immediately.  Ask your higher consciousness for help, it´ll come.

You can choose also by  intension: because all the malas have different themes, colour: which resonates with your chakras, beauty: which mirrors you, engery you might feel …

If you want an individual mala we can skype or phone, after you´ve sent me a request,  I´ll get back to you as soon as possible.


What´s on with those 108 beads ?

108 represents many things including:

The number of Upanishads, the number of names of Hindu Deities, Nataraja’s 108 dances, the 108 Gopis, Number of Sins in Tibetan Buddhism, 108 energy lines converting from the heart chakra, 108 Holy Temples of Vishnu, number of masculine and feminine letters combined in the sanskrit alphabet, the number of marmas in the subtle body etc. take a look in numerologie also….


What is the Guru Stone? (109th Stone)

Each mala necklace has an additional guru stone. This is the stone where we thank holybeings, our teachers, family, parents, friends, mentors etc.) and acknowledge our connection to the divine.


Knotted or unknotted?

If you are using the mala for Japa/Meditation I would recommend to take a knotted one. If you are going to wear the mala as a powerful juwelery, than you don´t need the knots. The mala becomes a littel bit longer with knots and also is a little smoother to wear. If you have found an unkotted, but you would like to have it knotted, please note that in your oder. For knotting the charge is 25,00 Euro extra.


How should I care for my Malas?

Malas are the original prayer strings. Even if you want to wear it all the time, please don´t during body contact with water, asana practice or other wild body movements. Please treat your mala carefuly, respecfuly, and with awareness. This is a handmade peace. Please even don´t wring it around your wrist. The swamis and monks might do so with their wooden malas, but they can quite easily find a new one … .-)


How do I choose a mantra?

In many traditions it is general that a mantra is given to you by your guru / teacher. This is  true and beautiful. But you can also choose by yourself.

Melt with your inner Guru!

The mantra doesn´t  has to be in sanskrit, though I would  highly recommend it.  The power of this holy old language is strong and helpful

But every affirmation as –  let go, I am love  –  is good also.



1. To remove obstacles or to realize them the Ganesha Mantra is usefull: OM GAM GANAPATHAYE NAMAHA

2. For abundance, feminin qualtities and joy: OM AIM HRIM KLIM MAHA LAKSHMIYE NAMAHA

3. Being aware and open for transformations: OM NAMAH SHIVAYA

There are very good Mantra Books available, I would like to recommend the ones by Thomas Ashley-Ferrand


How do I clean my mala?

There are several ways to clean a mala. You need to to it, when the stones are becoming dull. Then they need a rest from the exchange. The classical way is to use a little bowl with hematite stones, put the mala in there over night. Putting it into a bowl with mountain crystal for 24 hours afterwards.

You can also hang the mala into moonlight or the morning sun. Burn white sage or clear it by the sound vibration such as chanting or tibetan bowl.
