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 DZI symbolizing Tara the liberator and mother of all Buddhas according to Vajrayana.
Tara is another incarnation of the avalokiteshvara bodhisattva, whose female and male figures (Chenrezi) have a special honor in the Buddhist world. Tara's particularity lies in her seven eyes, through which she sees every manifestation of compassion in the world and the races to be saved. It is the bodhisattva of mercy and unfailing love, which grants its protégés help and protection. Tara has many incarnations: White Tara (fulfills wishes), Green Tara (fulfills wishes and protects), Golden Tara (prosperity and protection), Red Tara (love and healing). There are 21 Tara production methods in total. The dZi pearl with the Tara image on it has the power of all Tara's achievements. The pearl can help to avoid misfortune, protect against enemies and obtain justice. This will give those who are studying a chance to reach new frontiers of science.
There are many legends about the miracles associated with Tara. One of them concerns the Chinese goddess Yatou of Xian. She read the mantra to Tara Green a hundred thousand times when suddenly her crystal beads became emerald in color.
The Dzi is a Tibetan pearl, of distant origin, bringing many mystical benefits and benefits to its wearer. He is a Tibetan talisman or amulet, the king of good luck, sometimes revered as a true deity. The success of the Tibetan pearl comes from its multiple eyes, up to 21.
The Dzis are supposed to bring good fortune, ward off evil spirits, and protect its bearer from dangers and accidents, and even bring longevity and good health.
DZI originates from the Central Asian region and is generally found in a region that covers Afghanistan, Iran, Tibet, India, Pakistan, Nepal, During Hanhan to Burma and Thailand. They are found in many sizes and shapes, with multiple eyes and stripes. Tibetans cherish these pearls and consider them hereditary gems. The meaning of the Tibetan word "Dzi" translates as "brilliance, clarity, splendor." In Mandarin Chinese, dzi are called "pearl of heaven." Tibetans recognize, without being envious or jealous, the qualities of brilliant people, those people who shine intellectually and attract the attention and admiration of all. For Tibetans, wearing a Dzi pearl can develop in everyone this natural glow called talent.
The Dzis that can be translated as "brilliantly polished", "luminous" are elongated agate beads with a different geometric shapes on their surfaces, but each with 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, have a better Karma.
Many legends attribute to them a divine origin. One of them claims that they sometimes fall from the sky escaped from the treasures of the Gods, another says that they "mature" at the bottom of the earth and that they can sometimes be found inside some geodes. Some legends say that they are fossil insects, and others finally Garuda droppings.
The Dzi are also mentioned in some ancient Buddhist texts because some malas intended for the advanced practices of Vajrayana must be made in Dzi Dzi Dzi dating back 4,500 years were found in Tibet during archaeological excavations, thus in the middle of the shamanism period of Ben long before the arrival of Buddhism.
