Malas are used in Buddhist practice for counting mantras and prostrations. Turquoise, considered a "green" stone in Tibet, is often used for Green Tara practice, as well as practices which dispel obstacles. Made in the USA of high-grade turquoise with carnelian markers and guru bead.

Turquoise is associated with Green Tara, the feminine embodiment of enlightenment and a manifestation of the Buddha-nature that exists in all of us. Her female form represents wisdom, and she is called the Mother of all Buddhas. Tara comes swiftly to the aid of those in need. She is the liberator from karmic obstacles and fear. Her right hand, extended in the giving mudra, bestows the common and uncommon siddhis, or accomplishments. Her left hand is held in the gesture of fearlessness to bestow protection.

The mantra of Green Tara is: Om tare tuttare ture svaha

8mm beads. Finished in a traditional Tibetan protection knot. Exclusive to our catalog.

  • Mala means “garland” in Sanskrit. Malas have been used for thousands of years as a meditation and prayer tool by members of Dharmic religions and other spiritual followers. Stretchy wrist malas are often worn as a reminder to practice mantra at all times. Wearing a mala bracelet or necklace is especially convenient for a person who is ill and would like to recite mantra in bed; the mala beads are always right there on their body. Many spiritual people wear malas as a continuous reminder to be mindful.

    Malas traditionally consist of 108 beads plus 1 guru bead. 108 is considered a holy number in Dharmic belief and symbolizes spiritual wholeness. The guru bead is not counted in the 108 because it only functions to signify the end/ beginning of a prayer cycle while using the mala. It is also common to find mala with fewer beads, such as necklaces and bracelets. These will usually have 54 (1/2 of 108) or 27 (1/4 of 108) beads, but mala with other factors of 108 can be found as well. All malas, regardless of number of beads, may still be used for mantra practice.
