This listing is for a rosewood wrist mala with one coral spacer bead. Rosewood is useful for easing nervousness and boost compassion and love within oneself and resonates with the heart chakra. Coral quiets emotions and brings inner peace and resonates with the base/root chakra. It facilitates intuition, imagination, and visualization. Each bead measures approximately 8mm but may vary slightly due to its handmade nature.
Prayer beads (mala) are usually used in Tibet, Nepal, and India 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.
