This listing is for a rosewood and turquoise wrist mala/bracelet, each bead measures approximately 7mm. Rosewood is useful for easing nervousness and boost compassion and love within oneself. Turquoise is known for its ability to protect from outside influences and its ability to dissipate negative energy. Turquoise resonates with the throat chakra. This mala is hand strung by Hands of Tibet with love and is adjustable so it can fit all wrist sizes.
Malas are often used in Tibet, Nepal, and India for meditation, counting mantras, and prostrations. Mala are worn on the left wrist while not in use. Please contact me with any further questions and I will be 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.
