In 1983, Guru Hans Singh, a student of the Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan, found a uniquely designed necklace in, of all places, a French architectural book. When he presented this to the Siri Singh Sahib Ji, he was overjoyed. He declared that Tantric Masters have worn this sacred, geometrically designed necklace for thousands of years. He requested that one be made for him immediately and soon after, he was presented with a Lapis Lazuli and Gold Tantric Necklace. This necklace contains 416 beads in an unusual weave-like pattern and every member of the Khalsa Council was given the blessing to buy one of the beads on this necklace as a gift to our Teacher.
Afterwards, all who donated received a beautiful card with the configuration on the front, and the Bead Number on the back. I have framed all our family cards and see now that I gave Bead #2 and Hari Jiwan Singh gave Bead # 3! Who knew that we were right in line for something wonderful to come in the future! Nine Treasures is our family business which creates these blessed jewels.
In the beginning, we would bring each Tantric Necklace to the Siri Singh Sahib Ji to be blessed. At one point he said “From now on, every Tantric Necklace you make is blessed by me. Whoever wears a Tantric Necklace shall be blessed by me personally and shall continuously receive the healing, comforting, and elevating energy of White Tantra Yoga.” Today, we recite an Ardas over each necklace to have God, Guru and Siri Singh Sahib Ji bestow further blessings. These royal, healing, protective necklaces are made by hand in New Mexico, available in infinite combinations of gemstones. We love to create custom designs using the benefits of gemology indicated through the individual numerology. Garnet for courage and discipline, paired with Pearls for intuition and wisdom. Or Citrine for success and prosperity paired with Quartz Crystal for expansions and love.
The Siri Singh Sahib Ji used to call all necklaces Malas, so we have added Mala to the name. The Siri Singh Sahib Ji said “The word “Tantra” means to weave. It is as old as Man is; it is a very old science. It is a simple crown of spirituality, which can be acquired through service and devotion…” The Tantric Necklace Mala is our Sacred Weave. I don’t leave home without one! Wahe Guru.
Answering the question about whether tantric necklaces should be made with or without clasps:
The Siri Singh Sahib Ji told us that the power and blessings of the Tantric Necklace is in the sacred geometry of the design, which was worn by Meditation Masters for Millenia. The many benefits of the precious Tantric Necklace are bestowed to the wearer, whether the necklace has a clasp or does not have a clasp.
With the blessings of the Siri Singh Sahib Ji, Nine Treasures began sharing this sacred technology over 30 years ago in Los Angeles. We have made Tantric Necklaces with and without clasps. At Nine Treasures we offer Tantric Necklaces in any style, with or without a clasp, in infinite gemstone combinations to highlight personal numerology, astrology and taste! – Sat Bachan Kaur Khalsa – www.ninetreasures.com
