Buddhist Mala - 7 ChakrasBuddhist Mala beads are a centuries old tool designed to keep the mind focused on the practice of prayer and meditation. The symbol of the never ending cycle, each bead in the mala counts a Sanskrit prayer or mantra in sets of 108 repetitions. Combining tactile and conscious awareness, the beads are moved sequentially in rhythm with breathing. Each mantra centers and stills the mind, allowing the focus to be on the meaning of the mantra rather than counting the repetitions. Each time the mantra is repeated, the fingers move to the next bead. When using a Mala repeatedly, it is believed to take on the energy of the mantra that is being recited.
Our traditional Buddhist Mala contains 108 beads. The type of gemstone combined with a specific mantra is thought to have special properties that empower healing, a better sense of well-being and spiritual growth.
This Buddhist Mala represents the seven chakras. It is thought that each stone represents the color of a specific chakra bringing them into harmonious alignment with each other. A guide bead at the bottom is believed to be a special ceramic catalyst that may clear and energize you and your beads wherever the prayer beads are placed near. The stones in this mala are carnelian, blue agate, amethyst, red jasper, green jade, yellow agate, black agate, white agate, purple amethyst and clear quartz. This prayer bead is an essential tool in Buddhism and meditation.
This full sized Buddhist Prayer Mala necklace is handcrafted with 8mm beads. It is strung with 9 wire nylon thread for strength and durability and made the traditional way with a knot between each bead. A free mala bag included to store and protect your beads. Due to the natural materials used, the color and the size of the beads may vary slightly.
