As a gemologist who graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology in Paris, all our subjects are expert and certified.
As Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves, 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 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 cord on which the beads are threaded must, theoretically, present itself as a braid of several threads:
three sons symbolize the "three bodies" of a Buddha (Absolute Body, Body of Glory and Body of Emanation);
five sons symbolize the "five wisdoms" or the "five families" of Buddhas (Buddha family, vajra family, jewel family, lotus family, activity family)
nine threads symbolize the primordial Buddha Vajradhara and the eight great bodhisattvas.
108 high quality sandalwood beads called Laoshan, collectible sandalwood become rare.
The Indian sandalwood (S. album) is now very rare and therefore very expensive. Sandalwood from the Mysore region of South India is considered the best quality available. New plantations have been set up with the help of the international community in Tamil Nadu.
It is distinguished from other sandalwoods by its characteristic fragrance that persists over time, and the quality of its wood.
