Buddhist Mala - Premium Lotus SeedLotus seed Buddhist Mala beads are a centuries old tool designed to keep the mind focused on the practice of prayer and zen meditation. 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 lotus seed Buddhist Mala contains 108 beads. The type of bead combined with a specific mantra is thought to have special properties that empower healing, a better sense of well-being and spiritual growth.
These Premium Lotus Seeds are considered to radiate the spiritual power of the sun, multiplying the effects of one's spiritual practices one million times.

Using a lotus seed mala attracts the spiritual energy of the sun, and makes the face and eyes glow brightly with divine energy.
