Who We Are
Bringing to the world of today the wisdom and power of the ancient sages in the form of contemporary Malas. Inspired by Hindu spirituality, guided by Papaji (H.W.L. Poonjaji) and created by Soma Temple, “Aum Rudraksha Designs” was born in 2003 on the beautiful and magical island of Bali, Indonesia.
More than 20 years ago in India, well-known teacher Papaji told Soma that because she lived so close to the source of the highest quality Rudraksha beads in the world, her Dharma (destiny) was to spread them to the western world. Already used for centuries by Hindus and Buddhists, Papaji believed that because of the pure power of the Rudrakshas themselves, “The world would be at peace if everyone was wearing them”
Soma’s life-changing journey had only just begun...
We begin as a hobby of working with Rudraksha beads and now have distributors worldwide and supply more than 60 stores on five different continents. We have a fantastic team of forward-thinking people who wake up every morning doing what they love.
Our vision is that we will elevate our partners, customers, suppliers, and neighbors to create positive change around us.
Our Rudraksha seeds are organic and locally grown in our plantations in Indonesia.
We have taken Papaji’s message literally and are doing what we can to spread these sacred objects wherever possible. As human beings and a company, we are dedicated to living in awareness and truth. Our main goal is to encourage peace and love amongst all the people of this world. A strong message of ours is “sharing is caring” and that what we do in this life impacts our eternal karma. With this message in mind, we are happy to share 20% of our profits with those we feel need it most. We are an eco-friendly and sustainable company based on the principle that we are all ONE energy and must look out for Mother Earth and one another.
Let us entice you with our Mala creations or collaborate in bringing your own ideas to life. May we unify to share the healing energy of these rare and sacred beads. May they help you to abide in and act from the one true heart of pure consciousness.
