The Mantra Bead Project
World renowned chant artists, Deva Premal and Miten, with master goldsmith Ami Ben-Hur, are offering a beautiful new way to bring the energy of the ancient prayers known as mantra with you into your daily life.
Each Mantra Bead is a scroll made from 24 carat organic pure gold. It is imbued with sound through chants from Deva Premal and Miten, and inscribed with the Mantra using a diamond tipped pen. The Mantra will be a sacred prayer designed to awaken us to our divine nature. The scroll is then rolled into a bead and sealed with fire to encapsulate its vibration.
Just like any substance, sound or symbol, the Mantra Bead vibrates a unique essence within your energy body. Gold has long been held to be an alchemical transmitter of golden light and when it is imbued with the energy of ancient mantras from the East, it ignites the mantra’s essential vibration.
About Deva Premal & Miten:
Deva Premal & Miten began their journey into love and music in 1990 when they met at Osho’s Ashram in India. Their worldwide concerts and best-selling albums have since introduced millions of Westerners to the joy and deep relaxation found in chanting mantras from the Eastern meditation traditions.
German-born Deva Premal is a classically trained musician who grew up with Eastern spirituality, singing mantras as bedtime lullabies. Miten, originally from Britain, spent the 70s in the world of rock ‘n roll, opening for Fleetwood Mac, Ry Cooder, Lou Reed, and others.
Since then Deva & Miten have released a string of acclaimed CDs with sales exceeding one million, and their concerts have moved from yoga studios to audiences of thousands in concert halls and music festivals around the planet.
Their music transcends all the usual boundaries, receiving applause from such diverse luminaries as Eckhart Tolle, who calls their music “pure magic.” Hollywood movie icon Cher cites Deva’s The Essence as “My favorite CD for yoga.” Motivation guru and best-selling author, Anthony Robbins describes their music as “Passionate and powerful.” Even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is reported to enjoy their music during his private time and, when hearing Deva & Miten chant his favorite mantra at a private audience, exclaimed, “Beautiful music, beautiful…!”
In 2013, Deva and Miten offered the mantras online as a free 21-Day Mantra Meditation Journey. The program attracted over 200,000 participants and created a worldwide wave of mantra meditation. A new Mantra Meditation Journey is being offered free online in May 2014, and some of the mantras featured are included in those offered as Mantra Beads.
What do Mantra's Do?
Deva explains: “Mantras are energetic sound formulas, developed in the Eastern meditation traditions as a way to enhance awareness in daily life, and move us into spaces of deep inner peace and silence. Different mantras open different energy pathways and enhance different activities, such as: supporting physical healing; tapping into our inner strength in the face of obstacles; creating a blessing when preparing food, or before love-making.” Miten points out that: “The Sanskrit language is energy based. It is not a descriptive language – it carries the actual sound equivalent of the manifestation. Hence, the sound ‘prem’ – which translates as ‘love’ in English – is the actual energetic vibration of love. So, repetitive chanting of the sound ‘prem’ opens our perception, and brings us in touch with a direct, personal experience of love itself.”Each mantra is a key that opens a particular door into a place of inner peace and calm. As Deva notes, “For me the real pinnacle of the mantra is when the words are gone and only the vibration remains. I become engulfed in Ecstatic Silence.”
Ways of using the Mantra Bead:
The pure gold looks so alive and potent that it is simply beautiful to wear.
Enjoy the frequency of the gold and the mantra of your choice vibrating within you. Use it as a reminder by clasping your hands on the mantra bead and tune in to the essence of it, especially in challenging moments.
The Joy Meditation:
Meditate with your Mantra Bead. Find a comfortable position, and express your gratitude for the gold and the mantra for being present in your life. With relaxed and deep breaths allow its power to grow within you, gently removing any energetic blocks while enriching every cell. Feel it shining from within. Continue until you feel yourself vibrating as one with it. Enjoy!
The Guidance Meditation:
First, connect to the essence of your Mantra Bead. Now bring to mind a question, a pattern or anything you wish to contemplate. Ask the Mantra Bead “In the light of the Mantra and the purity of the organic gold, what will be the answer to my question?” Allow the Mantra and the Golden Light to fill your heart with understanding.
“We have found the mantra beads to be aesthetically pleasing and energetically vibrant in our chanting and meditations. The reason for offering the beads is to enhance the space of inner peace and ecstatic silence. We hope you will find them as beneficial and as inspirational as we have.” – Deva & Miten
