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. 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.
The bell, in Tibetan drilbou. It symbolizes, in a general way, emptiness (emptiness does not mean that nothing exists, but that phenomena do not exist as we perceive them because of the veil of ignorance that covers our mind).
1° Its hollow part represents emptiness and its beat the "sound" of emptiness (i.e. its dynamics potentially containing the manifestation)
2° The lotus with eight petals symbolizes the eight female bodhisattvas, associated with the idea of emptiness like all female deities.
3 ° The vase contains the nectar of the accomplishments.
4° The face on the handle is that of the female deity Prajnaparamitam symbol of the knowledge of emptiness.
5 ° The vajra contains its prope symbolism as seen above.
