This listing is for a turquoise wrist mala with a black onyx spacer. Turquoise is known for its ability to protect from outside influences and its ability to dissipate negative energy. Turquoise resonates with the throat chakra. Black onyx is known for its grounding and relaxing properties as well as the ability to release negative emotions. Black onyx resonates with the base/root chakra. Each of the beads measure approximately 8mm, but 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.
