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 repeats the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that surmounts it is the mark of emptiness itself.
As a gemologist graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology of Paris, all our stones are appraised and certified.
As a Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves while scrupulously respecting tradition.

Mala Tibetan Tantric Buddhist Rosary
108 buffalo bone beads in the shape of a skull with a dimension of 10mm by 7mm each.
Many are baffled by the use of bone beads, but in Buddhism and more specifically in Tantric Buddhism or Vajrayana such as Tibetan Buddhism, the use of bone is meant to remind us of the very fact of our impermanence, that death will eventually come.
In Asia, we find the symbolism of the skull in Buddhism and Hinduism through their religious art. Indeed the representation of the lord of death among Buddhists, named Yama, has five skulls around his head, like a crown that indicates a victory over five defects: hatred, greed, pride, envy and ignorance. On the other hand in the Hindu religion Kali the goddess of death is adorned with a necklace of skulls.

White Copper Tara Amulet
Amulet dating from the second half of the twentieth century from Tibet.
White Tārā, Tibetan, Dolma Karpo, Sītā Tārā, the White Liberator but also, luminous, clear, is one of the forms of the 21 known Tārā. She is a deity of Tibetan Buddhism. It symbolizes the activity of pacification, and more particularly grants longevity and health. His mantra is often recited with someone in mind. It also expresses compassion, and it is represented with seven eyes to signify the vigilance and omniscience of the spirit inhabited by this compassion (karuna).
The Sanskrit root târ- means "to cross" or "to cross" as by using a bridge to cross a stream. In the Indian Orthodox sacred tradition, Târâ refers to the second of the ten means of realization. And as Shri Tara Devi, she is the deification of this Mahavidya, according to Hindu Tantra. As A Târîni, she carries you through. In other words, it serves as a bridge for you to reach immortality. But the tar- root can mean "tree" and "especially," and it's also related to "star" and "pupil of the eye."
In Tibetan, it is called Dolma or Do'ma , although often we see Drolma because it follows the Tibetan spelling (a little more; if we transliterate, it is actually sgrolma.)
Tara in its white form is distinguished by its White body, like an autumn moon; clear as a stainless crystal jewel, radiating light. She has one face, two hands, three eyes. She is described in textbooks as having the youth of 16 years. Her right hand makes the gesture of giving gifts, and with the thumb and ring finger of her left hand, she holds a branch of white utpala, her petals at the level of her ear.
There are three flowers at various stages of growth symbolizing the three times (past, present and future). The first flowering that is seeded, usually on the right, represents Buddha Kashyapa who lived in a past eon; the second in first bloom represents the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, whose activity brought you here today, and the bud on the left symbolizes the future Buddhas - the expected one is the Maitreya Buddha.
Her hair is dark blue, bound to the back of her neck in the back with long hanging braids; her breasts are full; she is adorned with various precious ornaments, her blouse is of silk of different colors, and her robes are of red silk, the palms of her hand and the soles of her feet each have an eye, constituting the seven eyes of knowledge; she sits upright and firm on the circle of the moon, legs crossed in the diamond posture.
White Tara is called "Mother of All Buddhas".
