DARBHA POOJA MAT
Darbha Grass Pooja Mat. The Darbha Grass mat with cotton lining is woven in handlooms by the traditional weavers of Tamil Nadu and comes with anti-skid backing. The Kusha Grass Mats are woven in handlooms by traditional weavers. Darbha Grass Specialities:
- Darbha (Desmotachya bipinnata) is a tropical grass, considered to be a sacred material in Vedic scriptures and is said to purify offerings during rituals and yajnas
- Darbha is an eco-friendly and natural preservative used during times of eclipse to preserve food from getting fermented or infected by micro organisms
- It is believed that Darbha grass helps in retaining energy, during pooja- prayer- meditation, from being discharged through our body (mostly through legs and toes) into ground, when such a mat is used underneath.
- Darbha also has healing properties and is used in Ayurvedic medicines.
These mats have a natural beauty to leave down around the house even whilst you are not using them. The mats have a naturally ribbed serrated texture of the interwoven grass help you maintain your grip for a natural flow of movement, working towards a balance without providing artificial 'sticky' support. This gives a beneficial 'acupressure' effect through the soles of your feet.
