This listing is for a lotus seed 108 bead mala strung on stretchy cord. The lotus blossom is a very common symbol for enlightenment in Tibetan Buddhism because lotus flowers begin beneath muddy water and eventually rises above the mud clean, bright, and fragrant. Each bead measures approximately 9mm and is hand strung by Hands of Tibet with love. Prayer mala or beads are often used in Tibet, Nepal, and India by Buddhists for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are worn on the left wrist while not in use. Please email me for more detail and I will be more than happy to assist you.

"Om Muni Muni Maha Muni ye soha" to Lord Buddha Shakyamuni
