Buddhist Mala - Premium JadeBuddhist Mala beads are a centuries old tool designed to keep the mind focused on the practice of prayer and meditation in zen buddhism. When learning how to meditate, 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 is made of premium Jade beads. Jade is a gemstone of much history and has been part of Asian philosophy for centuries. It is often called the "dream stone" for its ability to help one access the non-physical spirit realms. It is thought to be a very protective stone acting to ward off negative energies.
Jade is thought to be a stone of the heart and is often related and used for the heart chakra including love. It is also a stone of fidelity and generosity and considered to be good for the physical heart as well as for emotional balance and stability. Jade is also thought to be very helpful as a stone of luck and abundance and a facilitator between the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of one's life. It is said when all of these aspects operate in harmony and balance, goals become easier to attain. Some believe that by slipping the Jade mala under your pillow, you will have enhanced dreams.
