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 beads, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (beads). The various components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The big pearl (or Buddha's head) that closes the loop meets the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that overcomes it is the mark of emptiness itself. The cord on which the beads are threaded must, theoretically, present itself as 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 the "five families" of Buddhas (Buddha family, vajra family, jewel family, lotus family, activity family)
nine threads symbolize the primordial Buddha Vajradhara and the eight great bodhisattvas.
Buddha having attained enlightenment under a sacred fig tree, pipal seeds are the most traditional material for making malas. These seeds patinate and take on a nice shine over time called "porcelain layer". Our seeds come from the island of Hainan known for cultivating and drying the finest quality in the world. Beware many sites and specialty stores name these seeds as Lotus seeds by mistake.
