Mala, rosary of prayer and Buddhist mediation. Tibetan Mala. Mala of impermanence. 108 bone beads infused with cinabre. jade.
Total room length 63cm
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.
We marinated the 108 buffalo bone beads in barrel cinabre powder for 6 months so that the bone soaks up the red color of the mineral, giving it that unique appearance.
The beads are 10mm in diameter.
The finishing pearl called Guru's head or Buddha's head is carved from deer antler, entirely handmade.
Skull size 27mm high by 17mm wide by 26mm deep
Deer antlers are of course harvested at the time of the spring.
The other two skulls are buffalo horn, dimensions 21/13/19mm
In finish, we put a sacred Tibetan agate DZI, said to "one eye"
The Dzi with one eye represents a beacon of light and hope. This powerful eye enhances human wisdom and produces the happiness of life. The obstacles encountered by the owner will be identified by this unique eye.
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.
Finally we added a Jade Pearl from Canada. Nephritis-type jade called "polar jade"
