As Malakara, we make all our mala ourselves by scrupulously respecting tradition.
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 support for the recitation of mantras, at the same time as it is used to count them if one has set to repeat a defined number.
The mala is composed of 108 beads strung, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (of beads). The different components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The big pearl (or Buddha's head) which closes the loop repesents the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that surmounts is the mark of emptiness itself.
This red sandalwood, coming from India, much rarer than white sandalwood has no characteristic smell and is part of the very precious woods.
In Buddhism, sandalwood is one of the Padma (lotus) and corresponds to the Amitabha Buddha, moreover 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 cults. It is also used a lot in India for these same applications.
The two-eyed Dzi allow harmony between husband and wife to build a happy family, to ensure success and good relations with others. The 2-eyed pearl represents the harmonious concept of Yin and Yang, the vital balance. So this pearl strengthens stability and balance.
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 lucky charms, 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 wearer from dangers and accidents, and even bring longevity and good health.
The IZS comes from the Central Asian region and is usually found in a region that covers Afghanistan, Iran, Tibet, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan 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 jewels. The meaning of the Tibetan word "Dzi" translates as "brilliance, clarity, splendor". In Mandarin Chinese, the dzi are called "pearl of heaven". Tibetans recognize, without being envious or jealous, the qualities of brilliant people, those people who shine intellectually and who 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 beads in agate of elongated shape having on their surfaces a decoration of various and varied geometric shapes, but each having a very specific meaning. The dzi are considered by Tibetans as 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 a divine origin to them. One of them claims that they sometimes fall from the sky escaped from the treasures of the Gods, another says that they "ripen" at the bottom of the earth and that they can sometimes be found inside certain 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 dating back 4500 years were found in Tibet during archaeological excavations, so in the middle of the Bön shamanism period long before the arrival of Buddhism.
In Buddhism, the Dragon is the vehicle of Vairocana, the white Buddha sitting in the east (or center). His throne supported by Dragons probably derives from the Chinese imperial throne. The Turquoise Dragon is the mount of a large number of protective deities, guardians of treasures and gods rain and thunderstorms. As guardians of treasures, the Sino-Tibetan Dragons are the counterparts of the Indian nagas. The Tibetan term druk (tib.brug) means both "dragon" and "thunder". Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom, is called Druk Yul (Land of the Dragon). Its inhabitants, the drukpas, take their name from the spiritual lineage drukpa kagyu, originally from Tibet. This lineage was established by the sage Tsangpa Gyaré who, having once observed nine dragons disappearing in the sky near Gyantse, decided to establish the monastery of Ralung. In Tibetan Buddhism, the rise to heaven of a group of Dragons is a good sign.
