These excellent solid stainless steel and durable titanium nitride (gold tone) coated stainless steel Karas are made from 300 series highest quality stainless steel. They are precision machined so they are quite uniform and smooth all around. These are 5mm wide and 5mm deep - about 1/5 of an inch square - with very smooth and rounded corners.
A. Has the 'Mool Mantra' - a sacred mantra (spiritual utterance) - its transliteration and translation are below offered by Guru Nanak - the founder of Sikhism. The Gurmukhi wording is laser engraved around the circumference of the bracelet.
B. Has my teacher of over 30 years, Yogi Bhajan's 'Nucleus Meaning' of Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa ~ Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh. Which is: 'I am the Divine, So my Attributes and so my Actions'. This kara has both these English words and the Gurmukhi script - laser engraved around the circumference of the bracelet.
We have these in two diameters:
2.25"/5.7cm inner diameter - weight is 1.3 ounce
2.5"/6.4cm inner diameter - weight is 1.4 ounce
Method for figuring out which size will fit you well.
Measure across your knuckles, pushing in the thumb a bit. Then you have a sense of what size may fit. Let us know if you have any further questions please.
Steel's energies are highly projective. If you are looking to protect yourself from aggressive advances or any forms of extreme negativity, stainless steel is a good option. Having, wearing or keeping steel close at hand, offers us strength, courage, grit and determination.
