For this long 108 Mala I use 8mm Feldspar, 8mm and 10mm Sandalwood beads, copper spacer beads and a Buddha amulet. The mala has been hand knotted on an extra strong, nylon cord with one knot between each gemstone bead. It not only looks great, it also makes it easy to use it as a tool in your meditation practice.
Mala length: 42" (106.5cm). Buddha Amulet: 1 1/2" (40mm).
Feldspar helps you in honoring yourself as a woman, honoring your sexuality and ability to create new life. Feldspar increases your self-respect, self-esteem and self-awareness. Feldspar is often associated with life’s changes and are beneficial if you have difficulty coping. It can help you see things in a more positive light. It is connected to the Solar Plexus Chakra (personal power, confidence, respect for self and others) and the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
Sandalwood is a sacred wood with a lovely aromatic scent, that has been used for over 4,000 years. It is said to bring one closer to the Divine. To bring back the scent of Sandalwood beads, just store in a glass jar with a lid overnight.
The Buddha is considered an ornament for purification, enhancing spirituality, good health and enables the wearer to rise above hallucinations brought about by materialism. The Buddha symbol represents your Dharma, finding your path.
