Mala, prayer rosary and Buddhist meditation.
As a gemologist who graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology in Paris, all our stones are expert and certified.
As Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves, scrupulously respecting tradition.
We assemble our malas on a traditional cord, a braid of 5 threads of the 5 colors of the 5 meditation Buddhas.
108 pearl beads of bodhi seeds (sacred fig tree) treated with cinabre. 8mm in diameter each
traditional treatment of browning and giving a beautiful layer of patina, in barrels filled with cinabre powder (mercury sulphide) for a few months.
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.

Tibetan sacred Agate DZI says to 9 eyes
The Dzi of the 9 eyes helps its owner to enrich himself, and expel the evil and acts as a protector. The number 9 is highly symbolic as it represents the 9 planetary systems that provide wisdom and merit.
Our contemporary Dzis are made according to tradition, by Tibetan craftsmen located at the crossroads of Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet in the Tibetan prefecture of Gyaltran at 4000 meters above sea level.
The stone is agate, and the drawings on its surface make it by the hand of man, but according to a secret technique. A mixture of plant and lead is applied to their surface, the whole is cooked (about 1200 degrees); on the way out and once the mixture is removed the drawings appear. According to some sources, some of the oldest Dzi were colored OF INTERIEUR using secret techniques long lost ...
Huge amounts of counterfeits circulate, as well as modern DZIs sold as antiques at astronomical prices.
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.
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 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.
