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.
In Buddhism, sandalwood is one of the Padma (lotus) and corresponds to the Amitabha Buddha, plus the element of this Buddha is fire and its color, red. Sandalwood is considered capable of transforming desires and retaining the attention of a person practicing meditation.
Sandalwood is one of the main constituents of incense made in China, Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, and is intended to be lit in temples or during worship. It is also widely used in India for these same applications.

The bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara (Hindi अवलोकितेश्वर Avalokite-vara "Lord Who Observes from the Top", Chinese 觀音 Guunsh-yan or 觀音 Guonyan, Shanghaian Kueu (sy)'in, Korean Gwanseeum 관세음, Japanese 観音 Kan'no, Tibetan Chenrezig, Vietnamese Quen Them, Indonesian Kwan Im, Khmer លោកេស្វរ Lokesvara), is arguably the most revered and popular great bodhisattva among the Great Vehicle Buddhists. It is also used as a yidam (tutelary deity) in tantric meditations.

Chenrézi is the bodhisattva of love and compassion. Chenrézi's poudja aims to develop loving friendship and compassion for all living beings without distinction. Chenrézi manifests itself in different forms: the 10-headed, 1000-arm Chenrézi of compassion is best known: he promised his spiritual father, the Amitabha Buddha, to expend all his energy to free all living beings and not to rest until all living beings were freed from their suffering. If he should ever doubt his mission, 'then my head could fragment into ten and my body in 1000'. When, after meditating deeply and reciting the Mantra of Mani, he saw that the ocean of suffering had still not emptied, then he fell into deep despair and broke his head in 10 and his body in 1000. The six-syllable mantra OM MANI PEME HOENG is the best known mantra of Tibetan Buddhism.
