In early mornings many Tibetans circumambulate (walk in a clockwise direction) around sacred places like the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal or the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. This action is done to promote positive action bringing karma for oneself and our world. The color combination of this mala resembles those found in the early morning sunrise and could serve as motivation for someone devoted to or just beginning a morning meditation practice. The main beads on this mala are transparent golden citrine, which are a powerful stone. Citrine is a joyful stone bringing bright energy to its wearer, also known as the sunshine stone. It can be used to increase self-esteem, aid in manifestation and dissipates negative energy. It resonates with the solar plexus chakra. The coral counters and guru bead are made of sponge coral, a traditional stone used by Tibetans for jewelry and malas. The coral brings with it energy that helps promote love and prosperity. Many also use it as a stone to promote reaching new goals. The gold-color accents on this mala help offset the counter beads and work nicely with the sunrise-color beads. Each of the beads measures approximately 8mm and is strung by Hands of Tibet with love. Please contact us with any further questions.
