At Japa Mala Beads, we pray that you are surrounded by protection, comfort, and ease as the world continues to respond and react to the COVID-19 epidemic. In these challenging and turbulent times, a regular meditation practice can be a tremendous help to calm and ground one’s worries and anxiety as well as to protect yourself from harm. We wanted to share a short note on how we are coping with this situation and how we can help you stay motivated, inspired, and strong.
The health and safety of our employees and customers is always our top priority. We are following the guidelines and recommendations as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the local U.S. health authorities to protect our employees and our customers. At our little mala bead studio, we have taken additional precautions to ensure we are maintaining a healthy and clean environment by increasing the frequency of cleaning. We are encouraging our employees to take extra precautions, including frequent handwashing and staying home if they are unwell.
We expect our online shop to remain open during these difficult times. We are currently not experiencing any delays in shipping, but this may change in the near future as this situation continues to evolve. We are currently well stocked with our imported malas from India, but with their current lockdown in place, we are unsure when we will be receiving new shipments. We have had a few delays in receiving some of our mala making materials, but we are well stocked to weather any future delays. We will update this page when any new developments or changes to our ability to provide you with our beautiful mala beads and spiritual products.
Please know that both the WHO and CDC have stated that the likelihood of catching the COVID-19 virus by touching cardboard or other shipping containers is low. While it is considered safe to receive and handle our shipments, we do encourage you to wash your hands as needed throughout your day.
Now more than ever, we wish to offer you our support and encouragement for your spiritual practice and our prayers for your overall health and wellbeing. We believe that mantra, intention, and gemstone therapy are powerful and helpful tools, especially in challenging and stressful moments. We have created a blog article to share some of the best gemstones that are known to help with boosting the immune system. There are also several malas and mantras that can be helpful to use for protection and healing. We hope that our malas and informative content will continue to help you feel strong, compassionate, and peaceful.
We also acknowledge the economic impact this outbreak is already having across the globe, and we want to empower you to seek out and fulfill your spiritual needs by offering a 15% discount on all items in our shop until the end of May. Use coupon code DURGA-15 on the shopping cart page to apply the discount. If your order is over $40, you will also qualify for a free gift from us (choices will automatically show on the shopping cart page).
Let’s all vow to stay calm, clear, centered, and strong in the days ahead. Let’s consciously choose love, kindness, and compassion over fear and uncertainty. Let’s resolve to use these challenges to strengthen our meditation practice and to support our loved ones with hope and connection.
Love & blessings,
The team at Japa Mala Beads
