The mala, trengwa, in Tibetan is the rosary of the Buddhist, the object from which the monk (or even the lay practitioner) almost never separates, holding it in his hand or wrapped around the wrist.
The mala is first of all a utilitarian onjet: it serves as a tactile support for the recitation of mantras, at the same time as it is used to count them if one has set to repeat a defined number.
The mala is composed of 108 beads strung, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (of beads). The different components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The big pearl (or Buddha's head) which closes the loop repesents the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that overcomes it is the mark of emptiness itself.

We used two Tibetan sacred Agates, called DZI in counter beads every 27 pearls as the malas tradition wants.

Our contemporary Dzis are made according to tradition, by Tibetan craftsmen located at the crossroads of Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet in the Tibetan prefecture of Gyaltran at 4000 meters above sea level.
The stone is agate, and the drawings on its surface are made by the hand of man, but according to a secret technique. A mixture of plant and lead is applied to their surface, the whole thing is cooked (at about 1200 degrees); at the exit and once the mixture is removed the drawings appear. According to some sources, some of the oldest Dzi would have been colored FROM THE INTERIOR using secret techniques lost for a long time...

A huge number of counterfeits circulate, as well as modern DZIs sold as antiques at astronomical prices.

A DZI is the DZI of nectar.
According to Tibetan tradition this pearl dZi brings a lot of luck to its owner, offering wealth and longevity. He grants prosperity, wisdom to those who are anxious to know, enlightenment to those who seek a spiritual path.

The other DZI representing a rectangle and a round is called the DZI of the moon and sun or DZi of the universe.
The sun has a masculine or yang essence of protection. From antiquity, the sun was thought of as a son of heaven. It symbolizes reasoning, justice and will.
The moon has a feminine nature or yin it represents renewal and resurrection. The Moon is also related to mystery, because its light envelops objects and things cannot be seen clearly, which gives them a mysterious halo. In this way, the star is linked to magic and mystery
In the Tibetan tradition, This Dzi possesses universal mystical power. The combinations of sun and moon are similar to Yin Yang and symbolize balance in life. This dzi helps teach the owner how to use and apply the force of the universe (or IQ) and optimizes the balance of a peaceful life.
This Dzi also brings to its wearer the universal force of protection and strength to fight against despair.


The Dzis that can be translated as "brilliantly polished", "luminous" are beads in agate of elongated shape having on their surfaces a decoration of various and varied geometric shapes, but each having a very specific meaning. The dzi are considered by Tibetans as powerful protections. According to legend, these stones are not of earthly origin, but, shaped by the gods and sown on earth so that whoever finds them, have a better Karma.

The Dzi is a Tibetan pearl, of distant origin, bringing many mystical benefits and benefits to its wearer. He is a Tibetan talisman or amulet, the king of lucky charms, sometimes revered as a true deity. The success of the Tibetan pearl comes from its multiple eyes, up to 21.
The Dzis are supposed to bring good fortune, ward off evil spirits, and protect its wearer from dangers and accidents, and even bring longevity and good health.

The IZS comes from the Central Asian region and is usually found in a region that covers Afghanistan, Iran, Tibet, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan to Burma and Thailand. They are found in many sizes and shapes, with multiple eyes and stripes. Tibetans cherish these pearls and consider them hereditary jewels. The meaning of the Tibetan word "Dzi" translates as "brilliance, clarity, splendor". In Mandarin Chinese, the dzi are called "pearl of heaven". Tibetans recognize, without being envious or jealous, the qualities of brilliant people, those people who shine intellectually and who attract the attention and admiration of all. For Tibetans, wearing a Dzi pearl can develop in everyone this natural glow called Talent.

Like all traditional malas, this piece is finished by a sliding knot below the final pearl (called Guru's pearl or Buddha's head) to loosen the mala for practice and tighten it once the exercise is over as shown in this video via this link
