Shyaama Tara

Shyaama Tara, is an aesthetic and dynamic combination of Red Onyx, Indian Agate, Howlite, and Tree Agate, named after the Buddhist Goddess ‘Green Tara’.

‘Shyaama’ means dark or (in this context) green, and ‘Tara’, refers to the Divine Feminine Principle, in Buddhism. Green Tara is called Shyaama Tara, in Sanskrit.

Blessed by the Goddess, who symbolizes the Pristine Spirit of the trees, woods, flowers, fruits, butterflies, birds, and the wind, Shyaama Tara, is born as a gentle child of Nature…

Indian Agate is a stone that comes from the mountains, carried down to river beds by the flowing waters. It is most often found during the period of the full moon. Through its travel, it catches the vibrations of the earth, water, moon and the sun! It emanates a mysterious range of healing properties… No wonder, it had been used widely by our ancients…. No stone can possibly exhibit this stunning range of colours, as the Indian Agate!

These beautiful Agates combine with a set of Red Onyx stones to achieve a beautiful pattern. And then the Howlites strike a beautiful contrast to the greens and the reds. With silverine beads in the centrepiece, the smooth alabaster Tree Agate stands out as an imposing pendant. The effect is truly picturesque!

This a splendid combination necklace that addresses the Sahasraara (crown) through the white Howlites & Tree Agate, Anahata (heart) through the Indian Agate, and the Mooladhara (root) chakra through the Red Onyx.

Much like the Goddess, Shyaama Tara symbolizes the feminine principle she has the power to create, nurture, protect, create compassion, love and harmony and good energy!

Dimensions – 8 mm beads, 18 inches long

Necklace – “Kokila”

“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”

DSCN6155

There was this beautiful pair of birds, who inspired me to make this necklace. The summer heat was still on, and the afternoons were scorching. It was a very difficult summer. Yet, through all this searing season, I could find an impassioned joy well up in my heart, listening to their beautiful voices, almost all through the day. In the silence of the heat, when all else had given up, loud and clear were the mellifluous strains of the pair of attractive (indian) cuckoos, almost all through the day, in their fervent animated spirits!

This necklace, that I call “Kokila” is in a simple way a dedication to the all-consuming spirit of my pretty feathered friends…

Kokila, is a symmetrical strung collection of Black Obsidian, Indian Agate, White Agate, Red Onyx, Moss Agate, and Titanium Druzy beads, with a luscious Grey Agate pendant!

The arrangement of beads in Kokila matches the beautiful patterning of colours in the cuckoo. Although simple in pattern, Kokila offers an unmatched visual charisma!

Black Obsidian protects and grounds, the Indian and Moss Agates create a serene calm, the White Agate balances with Obsidian to create a balance in the Yin-Yang energies, while the Red Onyx provides a security and stability, apart from the attractive quotient! The quaint Titanium Druzy beads de-stress, relax the mind, uplift spirits, and amplifies one’s energies…

Kokila is a well-balanced combination of the Yin and the Yang, and beautifully blends grounding with upliftment, relaxation with vigour, and harmony with a peaceful contrast!

Green gemstones are associated with the Anahata, or the heart chakra.

White gemstones are associated with the Sahasrara, or the crown chakra.

Red, Grey and Black gemstones are associated with the Mooladhara, or the root chakra.

Dimensions – 6mm & 8 mm beads, 18 inches long
