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 nice shine over time called "porcelain layer". Our seeds come from the island of Hainan known for cultivating and drying the finest quality in the world. Beware many sites and specialty stores name these seeds as Lotus seeds by mistake.

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 Tibetan Endless Knot or Infinite Knot, placed in finish and turquoise, is a Buddhist symbol that represents the movement of what is eternal, the spiritual paths that intertwine and time. The shape of the Endless Knot is evocative of wisdom and compassion in Tibetan Buddhism. The top and bottom of the symbol symbolize the interaction of the opposing and duelles forces, which eventually come together and unite in the universe. The infinite Tibetan knot also represents the inseparability of the Void and the reality of existence. Finally, since the Node has neither beginning nor end, it is also defined as the Wisdom of Buddha
