For this 108 Mala I used 6mm White Jade, 6mm Grey Agate, 6mm Sandalwood Beads, brass spacer beads and a Vintage Buddha Amulet from Thailand. 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: 34" (86,5cm). Amulet length: 1 3/8" (32mm).
Jade is a stone used to attract love, fidelity and healing. It is connected to the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness) and the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom).
Agate stands for protection, strength and harmony and it is connected to and can remove blockage from any chakra.
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 over night.
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.
