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.
Mala made to order, production time between 7 and 10 days, depending on our order book.
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. The cord on which the beads are strung must, theoretically, be 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 "five families" of Buddhas (Buddha family, vajra family, jewel family, lotus family, activity family)
nine sons 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 beautiful shine over time called "porcelain layer". Our seeds come from Hainan Island known for growing and drying the best quality in the world. Be careful many sites and specialized stores name these seeds as lotus seeds by mistake.

The Dzi that can be translated as "brilliantly polished", "luminous" are agate beads of elongated shape having on their surfaces a decoration of various and varied geometric shapes, but each having a very specific meaning. Dzi are considered by Tibetans to be powerful protections. According to legend, these stones are not of earthly origin, but, shaped by the gods and sown on earth so that whoever finds them, has a better Karma.
Dzi dating back 4500 years have been found in Tibet during archaeological excavations, so in the middle of the Bön shamanism period long before the arrival of Buddhism.
Statues can be seen around the neck in temples or on llamas.
The stone is made of agate and the drawings are made by hand according to a secret technique.
