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 medium for the recitation of mantras, at the same time as it is used to count them if one has set a 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 who graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology in Paris, all our stones are expert and certified.
As Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves, scrupulously respecting tradition.
