As a gemologist graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology in Paris, all our subjects are expertized and certified.
As a Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves while scrupulously respecting tradition.
Sliding knot in finish like all our malas, object of practice, as shown in this video as an example.
The mala, trengwa, in Tibetan is the buddhist's rosary, 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 strung pearls, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (of pearls). The different components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The large pearl (or Buddha's head) that closes the loop represents the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that surmounts it is the mark of emptiness itself. The cord on which the beads are strung must, theoretically, be a braid of several threads:
three sons symbolize the "three Bodies" of a Buddha (Absolute Body, Body of Glory and Body of Emanation);
five sons symbolize the "five wisdoms" or "five families" of Buddhas (Buddha family, vajra family, jewel family, lotus family, activity family)
nine sons symbolize the primordial Buddha Vajradhara and the eight great bodhisattvas.
This mala is composed of 108 red sandalwood pearls of 8mm diameter each.
Red sandalwood native to congo
Red sandalwood of AB quality. This red sandalwood, much rarer than white sandalwood, has no characteristic smell and is part of the very precious woods.
In Buddhism, sandalwood is one of the Padma (lotus) and corresponds to Amitabha Buddha, moreover the element of this Buddha is fire and its color, red. Sandalwood is considered capable of transforming desires and retaining the attention of a person practicing meditation.
Sandalwood is one of the main constituents of incense made in China, Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, and is intended to be lit in temples or during worship. It is also widely used in India for these same applications.
the 3 counter beads of 20mm also of the same sandalwood have the mantra of compassion "om mani padme hum" engraved.
As a finish, we added a red sandalwood pendant, representing amitabha Buddha to the dragon.
Pendant dimension: 60mm long by 40mm wide by 10mm thick.
Total mala dimension: 55cm
Amitabha Buddha is the protector of people born under the sign of the dog and the pig.
Amitābha, Amitāyus or Amida is a Buddha of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. He reigns in the "Pure Western Land of Beatitude" (sk.: Sukhāvatī, ch.: Xīfāng jílè shìjiè, ja.: saihō goraku sekai 西方極樂世界), a wonderful, pure, perfect world, devoid of evil, suffering. This pure land, a place of refuge outside the cycle of transmigrations – or the equivalent of nirvāņa according to some conceptions – is at the center of the beliefs and practices of the pure land schools. This Buddha, also called the Buddha of buddhas, is very popular among Mahāyānists, especially in the Chinese world, Korea, Japan, Tibet and Vietnam.
His name means "Infinite Light" or "He whose splendor is immeasurable".
Anyone who believes in this Buddha is guaranteed to enter Sukhavati, where he will be reborn. Amitâbha is therefore a kind of savior who guarantees an afterlife: everyone can achieve liberation by invoking his name, rather than having to undergo countless rebirths.
In an earlier existence, Amitâbha was a king who, after being in contact with Buddhist teaching, gave up his throne to become the Dharmakara monk. Dharmakara made 48 vows, by which he promised to help those who would follow the path to enlightenment. Through meditation, the monk finally managed to fulfill his vows and became the Buddha Amitâbha.
Having fire as its element, it is associated with twilight and life in the afterlife. It is usually depicted in red, sitting on a lotus flower, or sometimes traveling on the back of a pair of peacocks. His hands make the mudra of meditation, one hand simply resting on the other, his emblem is the lotus, the symbol of spiritual rebirth, and he is associated with the direction of the west.
Although he was originally from India, it was in China and Japan, where he bears the name of Amida (the Buddha who inspired the "Pure Land" school of Buddhism), that Amitâbha was the object of the greatest veneration. In the eighth century, the Indian monk Padmasambhava introduced the cult of Amitâbha to Tibet, where he attracted many disciples.
Om mani padme hum (derived from Sanskrit, sometimes followed by a seventh syllable, hrih) is one of the most famous mantras of Buddhism. It means "The Jewel in the Lotus".
This is the six-syllable mantra of the boddhisatva of compassion Avalokitesvara (Guanyin in Chinese, Kannon in Japanese, Chenrezig in Tibetan). It is therefore also called the mantra of great compassion (mahakaruna).
Its influence is universal in Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism.
It is also said that OM MANI PADME HUM provides powerful protection against all kinds of negative influences and various forms of diseases.
HRIH, the "germ syllable" of Avalokiteshvara, is often added to the mantra, resulting in OM MANI PADME HUM HRIH.
HRIH, the essence of the compassion of all Buddhas, is the catalyst that makes this compassion active in order to transform our negative emotions into their nature of wisdom.
The meaning of the six syllables of Om Mani Padme Hum is beautiful and immense. The first, Om is composed of three letters: A, U, M. These symbolize the body, speech and impure spirit of the practitioner; they also symbolize the pure and exalted body, word and spirit of a Buddha.
Om Mani Padme Hum is also pronounced Om Mani Padme Hung in Tibetan.
Buddhism does not assert that there is someone who from the beginning is free from faults and who possesses all the right qualities. The development of the body, the word and the pure mind, is obtained by gradually leaving behind the impure states by transforming them into pure states.
The path is indicated by the following four syllables:
Mani, which means "Jewel", symbolizes the factors of the method - the altruistic intention to become an enlightened, compassionate and loving being.
The two syllables, PADME, mean lotus and symbolize wisdom. In the same way, the lotus that grows in the mud but is not soiled by the defects of the mud, wisdom can put you in a situation of non-contradiction while there could be contradiction if you did not possess wisdom.
Purity must be attained through an apparent unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable HUM, which indicates invisibility. According to the sutra, this invisibility of method and wisdom refers to the wisdom affected by the method and the method affected by wisdom. The mantra vehicle (or tantra vehicle), refers to a consciousness in which there is the form full of wisdom and method as an undifferentiated entity. In terms of the seed syllables (of origin) of the five Buddhas, HUM is the seed syllable of the Akshobhya - the immutable, the invariable, which cannot be disturbed (moulted) by anything. :energy:
So the six syllables, OM MANI PADME HUM, mean that depending on the practice of a path that is an invisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your body, speech and unclean mind into an exalted and pure body, word and mind of a Buddha.
The Initiation to the Sacred Mantra Om Mani Padme Hum allows us to awaken our memories as a servant of the Buddha, to activate the Jewel of the Lotus that is in us.
