Mala 108 seeds of sacred fig tree (pipal).
DZI (Tibetan Sacred Agate),
phurba and dorje

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 finest quality in the world. Be careful many specialized site and stores name these seeds as Lotus seeds by mistake.
The whole is embellished with accessories straight from Tibet (Gyaltran).

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.
Each Dzi has a meaning according to the representations on its surface

The Phurba is a dagger to defeat demons. It was introduced into Tibetan Buddhism by Phadmasambhava and is a symbol of transmutation of negative forces.

Often made of stones, bones, or iron, Phurba daggers from Tibetan Buddhist temples are easily recognizable by their triple-sided blade. Used in rituals to drive away unwanted spirits, Phurba acts spiritually to immobilize demonic spirits and sometimes kill them in the hope that they will reincarnate in better places.

Each component of Phurba has its own meaning. The blade of the dagger represents the method, with each of the three sides representing the three-spirited worlds. The tip reconciling all three to form a harmonious global axis. The triple-blade design is also intended to simultaneously transform the world's three poisons into positive energies. These poisons are ignorance, greed and aggression. Enemies of Buddhism who may require a lifetime to overcome in the quest for enlightenment. The blade is often seen as indestructible and lit with a fire to burn above the hate.

The Handle of the Phurba represents wisdom and is often modeled as an eight-sided bulb with symmetrical nodes at each end. There are various interpretations to the presence of these nodes. From the belief that Nirvana is locked inside, to the belief that the different sections of the knots contain the paradises of several gods. By going as far as the desire for a formless form, representing the fact of being shapeless in the kingdom of the Buddhas.

The top of the handle often displays the three wrathful deities of Yamantaka, Amrita Kundalini, and Hayagriva. Yamantaka, the white face, symbolizes the body and the destruction of hatred. Amrita, her face colored blue, symbolizes the spirit and the destruction of illusion. Hayagriva, the face of red color, symbol of speech and the destruction of greed.

In many illustrations, the Phurba dagger is depicted in a simple form, due to its small size. However, in its three-dimensional form, this tiny blade is most often depicted with many Buddhist symbols and demonstrates its focus on purging evil.

Vajra, in Tibetan dorje. It is arguably the most important symbol of Tibetan Buddhism. The term means "diamond" and refers to the indestructible nature of the mind in itself, awakening, which is both imperishable and indivisible. The small scepter seems to be, originally, the diamond lightning of the god Indra, it is a mark of royalty and power.

(1) the five upper points represent the five wisdoms, five facets of the diamond that is the awakened mind:

mirror-like wisdom, which means that the awakened mind, just like a perfectly polished mirror, clearly reflects all things, possesses the ability to know everything, without any confusion.

the wisdom of equality, which recognizes that all the phenomena of samsara (my ordinary world) and nirvana (the pure fields or paradise of the Buddhas) are of an equal nature in that they are of a unique essence: emptiness

the wisdom of distinction, which denotes that the awakened mind perceives not only the emptiness of all phenomena (which is what the wisdom of equality operates) but also, in an unconfounding simultaneity, all phenomena as they manifest themselves;

the fulfilling wisdom, which allows the Buddhas to create pure fields and emanations working for the good of beings;

the wisdom of universal space, which indicates that all phenomenes, beyond all concept and duality, dwell in the pure knowledge of the spirit.
