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.
As a gemologist graduated from the Institut National de Gemmologie de Paris, all our stones are appraised and certified.
As Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves by scrupulously respecting tradition.

The rudraksha (Rudra-Aksha, " rudra's eye " in Sanskrit, Rudra being one of shiva's names) is the seed of Elaeocarpus angustifolius, a tree that inhabits India.
By extension some Hindu rosaries (mâlâ) made of these seeds bear this name. Shiva is traditionally depicted wearing such rosaries around the neck. Sadhus and Shivaite yogis in India usually wear one.
The value of the grain varies according to the number of faces (mukhi).
those with five faces are the form of Pancha Brahma (the fivefold Brahma) and protects the one who carries him from any risk of murder.
The seeds of a rudraksha are therefore reputed to contain a special power and have a positive influence on spirituality and health. In particular, they would promote meditation.
