This listing is for a lotus seed wrist mala/bracelet for meditation. 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 of the lotus seed beads measure approximately 8mm and are 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.
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.
