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.

As a gemologist graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology of Paris, all our stones are appraised and certified.

As Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves with scrupulous respect for tradition.
We assemble our malas on a traditional cord, a braid of 5 threads of the 5 colors of the 5 meditation Buddhas.

GARUDA
Garuda, fabulous birdman of Hindu and Buddhist mythology, son of Kashyapa and Vinatâ and brother of Aruna, the chariot driver of the god Sûrya. It is the vâhana, or mount, of the god Vishnu. He is also considered the king of birds.
In Tibet, Khyung (ཁྱུང) is the Tibetan name for Garuda. Coming from India, it was assimilated to the khading of the bön religion, the golden-horned eagle. The black garuda is a deity of the Nyingmapa school of Tibetan Buddhism who is believed to suppress the affections caused by the naga and spirits of the earth. He is depicted on the Lungta. It is represented in the iconography of Shambhala by Chogyam Trungpa for whom it is associated with significant speed and power. Like the phoenix, it rises from the ashes of destruction, it is indestructible.
