Malas are hand-knotted prayer pieces traditionally used in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Yoga practices. They consist of 108 beads, each bead representing a repetition during meditation. They are traditionally used as a tool to help the mind focus.
The 109th stone is the guru stone, and symbolizes gratitude and our connection to the divine and allows us to say thank you to our spiritual leaders for guiding us on the path to enlightenment.
Our Tree Mala is hand-crafted with 8mm Tree Agate gemstone beads, finished with a Clear Quartz guru bead with a cotton tassel. This necklace hangs approximately 21 inches long from top to bottom.
Tree Agate: Considered a stone for "inner peace," it helps to create a peaceful environment and enhance mental function while improving concentration. It will provide you with the strength to drown out noise and chaos.
To enhance the intentions and the longevity of your mala is to keep it stored in a dark cool place in the pouch provided. Avoid oils, perfumes, and other chemicals that may alter the physical preciousness of the stones. Can be cleaned gently with a lightly dampened white cloth.
**Proceeds from each Mala sold will be going to Canadian Mental Health support for children and adults**
