The Narmada River, a holy river flowing through central India, is said in mythology to have become a river of sweat flowing from the meditating Lord Shiva, and even the holy Ganges River is said to transform itself into a black cow and come to bathe. This Indian agate called "Babaghuri" is unearthed in a small village in the Narmada basin of the holy river. This Babaghuri was used as a bead (stone) for saints, for monks such as Sufis (Islamic mystics), for prayer in ancient Buddhism, and for healing in Tibet. In Japan, it is known that the designer Jurgen Lehl (1944-2014) collected it, and the timeless beauty that drifts perfection created by the nature is a kind of meditative and brings the stillness of the mind.
