Rosewood & Turquoise Mala
Rosewood beads with turquoise,carnelian, and metal disc beads create this mala. Wood and stone color enhanced for uniformity. Corded wood beads makes a lighter weight strand often easier for transport in pocket or purse
Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. These mantras can be recited for different purposes linked to working with mind.
Mantras for magnetizing should be recited using malas . Mantras are typically repeated hundreds or even thousands of times. The mala is used so that one can focus on the meaning or sound of the mantra rather than counting its repetitions.
One repetition is usually said for each bead while turning the thumb clockwise around each bead, though some traditions or practices may call for counterclockwise motion or specific hand and finger usage
Most Buddhists normally utilize mala consisting of 108 beads, but the number may vary in different sects of Buddhism. Just like the Hindu variety, Buddhist mala consist of a strand of 108 beads (not including marker beads, decorative beads or guru bead), each a symbol of impurities and flaws that an individual must overcome.
108 beads is said to represent the following formula:
6 x 3 x 2 x3 = 108
6 senses of a human being: sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, thought
3 times: past, present, future
2 conditions of heart, mind or intention: pure or impure
3 disturbing emotional states or "kleshia": like, dislike, indifference the vata and kapha doshas.
