Mala, prayer rosary and Buddhist meditation.
Room Length 58cm
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.
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.
Sliding knot in finish like all our malas, object of practice, as shown in this video as an example.

Turquoise of the hand-carved dragon Hubei
In Buddhism, the Dragon is the vehicle of Vairocana, the white Buddha sitting in the east (or center). Its dragon-backed throne probably derives from the Chinese imperial throne. The Turquoise Dragon is the mount of a large number of protective deities, treasure keepers and rain and storm gods. 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, native to Tibet. This lineage was established by the wise Tsangpa Gyaré who, having once observed nine dragons disappear in the sky near Gyantsé, decided to establish the monastery of Ralung. In Tibetan Buddhism, the rise to heaven of a group of Dragons is an auspicious sign.
