Buddhist Mala - AmethystThe Mala prayer bead is an essential tool in Buddhism and meditation. Buddhist Mala beads are a centuries old tool designed to keep the mind focused on the practice of prayer and meditation, and a symbol of the never ending cycle. Each bead in the mala counts a Sanskrit prayer, or mantra, in sets of 108 repetitions. Combining touch with 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. With the completion of each mantra, 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 Amethyst Mala is a powerful stone of the mind. It promotes calm and clarity and enhances healing and self-realization. Amethyst fosters attunement to the inner self, balance of the chakras and personal transformation.
This full sized Buddhist Prayer Mala necklace is handcrafted with large 6mm 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 mala bag is included to store and protect your beads. Due to the natural materials used, the color and the size of the beads may vary slightly.
