Receiving a bowl from the Water Mala is an invitation to look at water in a vibrant new way, personalizing water’s vitality in our lives. It is to be part of a larger body and instill an awareness that each drop is sacred to life. Mindful that your bowl’s daily water level depends on your attention, and left unattended it will go dry. With care, your bowl will stay full, bringing a fresh sense of the “view outside the window”, quietly connecting each Water Mala participant while raising awareness to the beauty of preserving our most vital resource.
