This mala is primarily lapis lazuli, which is a beautiful deep blue with flecks of gold pyrite. It is reminiscent of a night sky filled with stars. Lapis lazuli is known around the world as a stone of truth and friendship that can help bring harmony to relationships. The rose quartz compliments because of its pale pink color and represents unconditional love. This mala highlights three yak bone beads with Om Mani Padme Hum dyed onto them. This mantra is commonly said aloud or silently by Tibetan Buddhists and is believed to invoke the power and blessings of Chenrezig, who is the embodiment of compassion. This mantra is so powerful that simply looking at is believed to have the same effect. This mala is a perfect gift for someone you love.
The beads measure approximately 8mm, however may vary slightly in size due to their handmade nature. Prayer beads are usually used for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are worn on the left wrist while not in use. Please contact me with any further questions.
Suggested mantras for this mala:
"Om Muni Muni Maha Muni Ye Soha" to Lord Buddha Shakyamuni
"Om Tare Turi Tutari Turi Soha" to White Tara
"Tayatha Om Pekatse Pekatse Maha Pekatse Raza Samu Gati Soha" to Medicine Buddha
1. Hold the mala with the long knot at the top. Use thumb and forefinger from each hand to hold beads on either side of the knot (left hand holds the bead on the eft, right hand holds the bead on the right).
2. Pull hands apart and away from the long knot. Our malas are usually knotted a little tight so you can pull pretty hard!
3. To tighten, pull small beads at the end of the strings.
**due to the natural methods used to dye the yak bone, these beads are not waterproof
