Kara Black Gold - Gobinde Mukande
Engraved, ca. 40 g
This Black-Gold Kara is made in a unique way. Solid gold wire is inlayed into the surface of the Kara and then it is baked in an oven, giving the Kara its distinguished black look. The black coloring will wear off after a few weeks, but the gold inlay work remains solid. This technique has been used for hundreds of years in the desert state of Rajasthan, decorating ancient sword and kirpan scabbards.
The shape of this Kara is gently rounded on the outside as well as on the inside, providing a pleasant wearing comfort.
The golden engraving on the outside of this Kara reads:
Gobinde, Mukande, Udaare, Apaare, Hareeang, Kareeang, Nirnaame, Akaame.
This mantra describes 8 of the aspects of God; the Sustainer, Liberator, Enlightener, Infinite, Destroyer, Creator, without Name and without Desire.
This mantra was used by Guru Gobind Singh’s warriors on the battlefield to give them strength and courage.
The Kara is hypo-allergenic, rust proof, and guaranteed to arrive without imperfections.
The weight of the Kara may vary slightly, depending on the size.
This Kara is available in the following sizes:
- S: inner diameter approximately 6,4 cm.
- M: inner diameter approximately 7,3 cm.
- L: inner diameter approximately 7,7 cm.
History and use of a Kara:
The Kara is originally a bracelet made of iron or steel and was first given by Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the 10th Sikh Master, in 1699 as one of the 5 K's of the Sikhs - a powerful protection and radiant symbol for the one who wears it.
A circle with no beginning and no end, the Kara represents man’s unbreakable relationship with the eternal creator and the Infinity. The steel or iron is a reminder of the strength of the bond which unites us together and ultimately to the Divine.
A Kara is not only a spiritual or religious garment, it is a powerful jewel of radiance, enhancing your personality and presence. In the science of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, the Kara is also valued for its energetic-magnetic effects on the Aura – strengthening the male or active energy when worn on the right hand, and the female or more receptive energy when worn on the left hand.
