In Vedanta there are Four Yogas. Each yoga can help us to define our dharma, our purpose in life. In her new book "What's Your Dharma? Discover the Vedic Way to Your Life's Purpose" Lissa Coffey writes: "Karma Yoga is the path of work, or the path of service. This is work without attachment to the end result."
This Golden Rutile Mala, with its sunny yellow color, resonates with those on the path of Karma Yoga.

I LOVE my new Mala :o) It is a beautiful light yellow colored stone- richer than what is shown in the photo! I also love the variations in the stone, it gives it a nice touch, and the bead to bead size variation is nice to feel as you roll from bead to bead during your mantra session.
