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.

A Tibetan sacred agate, DZI "gate of earth and sky" supposed, according to Tibetan tradition, reconciles the male and female principle, protects against bad magics and avoids misfortune.
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."

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.
Dzi-like pearls are found in many parts of the world, in Asia (Cambodia for example) but also in archaeological sites in Mesopotamia and even In Carthage The stone is in agate and the drawings are handmade using a secret technique.
Vajra, in Tibetan dorje. It is probably the most important symbol of Tibetan Buddhism. The term means "diamond" and refers to the indestructible nature of the mind itself, awakening, which is both imperishable and indivisible. The small scepter originally appears to be the diamond lightning of the god Indra, a mark of royalty and power.
(1) the top five points represent the five wisdoms, five facets of the diamond that is the awakened mind:
mirror-like wisdom, which means that the awake mind, like a perfectly polished mirror, clearly reflects all things, has the ability to know everything, without any confusion.
the wisdom of equality, which recognizes that all the phenomena of samsara (ordinary world) and nirvana (pure fields or paradise of 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 the wisdom of equality) but also, in a simultaneous, unre-confusiond nature, 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 any concept and duality, remain in pure knowledge of the mind.
(2) At the same time as the five wisdoms, these five upper points symbolize the Five Winners or five main Male Buddhas on a mystical level. The five lower points symbolize the Five Female Buddhas.
(3) The mouths of makara (sea monster) whose tips emerge denote the liberation of the cycle of existences.
(4) The eight upper petals represent the eight male bodhisattvas, i.m. eight large bodhisattvas remaining in celestial domains.
(5) The eight lower petals are the eight female bodhisattvas.
6. The round part in the middle refers to emptiness.
The Phurba is a dagger to defeat demons. It was introduced into Tibetan Buddhism by Phadmasambhava and is a symbol of the transmutation of negative forces.
Often made of stones, bone, or iron, Phurba daggers from Tibetan Buddhist temples are easily recognizable by their triple-sided blade. Used in rituals to drive out unwanted spirits, Phurba acts spiritually to immobilize demonic spirits and sometimes kill them in the hope that they will be reincarnated in better places.
Each component of the Phurba has its own meaning. The dagger blade 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-bladed design is also designed 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 over hatred.
The Phurba handle represents wisdom and is often shaped like an eight-sided bulb with symmetrical knots at each end. There are various interpretations to the presence of these nodes. From the conviction that Nirvana is locked inside, to the belief that the different sections of the knots contain the paradises of several gods. Going to the desire for a formless, representing the fact of being informed 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 in blue, symbolizes the spirit and the destruction of the illusion. Hayagriva, the red face, symbol of speech and destruction of greed.
In many illustrations, Phurba's dagger is represented 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.
