Jade symbolized gentleness, serenity, harmony, and balance in feng shui practice and alternative healing. A tassel is an essential and defining part of a yogic, Hindu or Buddhist mala. A mala bead’s tassel has both a functional purpose as well as a spiritual significance. The color of a mala’s tassel can also have an important spiritual and phycological effect on its wearer. The tassle represents a lotus flower and enlightenment on our spiritual path.
