A Tibetan-style mala (prayer beads or Buddhist rosary) made from 108 natural bone beads inlaid with faux turquoise and coral. 

Design Highlights:

  • 108 natural bone beads inlaid with faux turquoise and coral.
  • Designed with no markers or dividers that may distract you from your meditations.
  • Ideal for retreats and extended mantra recitation sessions.
  • Bone is one of the best materials for malas as recommended in the scriptures, as it is a reminder of our mortality. Bone also collects merit for the creature from whose bones the beads are made, even though their consciousness has passed from their original form to another.
  • Turquoise is one of the oldest symbols of protection and healing. Especially useful for clearing the Throat Chakra, and blockages of suppressed self-expression, it is worn by both men and women alike.
  • Coral promotes balance, peace and harmony, and is known as a stone of regeneration and purification. Facilitating intuition, imagination and visualisation, it is a great learning and meditational aid. Red coral is also used as a protective talisman against black magic.

Further Reading

Using a mala

  • Hold the mala at the level of your heart.
  • You can use either hand to hold the mala. Traditionally, the left hand is used for Mother Tantras and the right hand is used for Father Tantras.
  • Pull each mala bead towards you as you chant. Use one bead to count one mantra.
  • The mala can rest on any finger. Each finger represents a different aspect of enlightened activity — index finger (pacification), middle finger (growth), ring finger (control), little finger (wrath).
  • Blow on your mala to bless it after completing the mantra recitation session.
  • You can also recite the Blessing the Rosary mantra OM RUCHIRA MANI PRAVARTAYA HUM seven times then blow on your mala before starting the prayer session. This increases the power of the mantras you recite 1,000,000 times.
  • Use in combination with a mala counter for extended chanting sessions.
  • Don’t leave your mala lying about. Keep in a small bag or pouch when not in use to protect your mala and keep it clean.
  • Do not bring into the toilet.

Tips for effective mantra chanting

  • Chant loud enough for you to hear yourself.
  • Whispering is okay but silent chanting is not.
  • Chant softly so you don’t disturb others around you.
  • Don’t chant too fast. Enunciate each syllable, don’t rush or stumble.
  • Don’t chant mindlessly. Focus on the visualisation or the sound of the mantra.
