About this Mala:
This amazing Citrine mala is handmade in California by a Tibetan Buddhist monk, with your choice of 6mm or 8mm citrine beads.
Citrine promotes motivation, activates creativity and encourages self-expression. It is believed to enhance concentration and revitalize the mind. It helps with emotional balance and purifies negative traits such as depression and fear. It is believed to be healing for bladder diseases and thyroid imbalances. It is said that citrine carries the virtue of self-healing, inspiration and self-improvement.
How to Use the Mala?
Traditionally, malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. In Tibetan Buddhism, malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 beads (plus one for the “guru bead”, around which the other 108 beads turn like the planets around the sun).
Mala for a Good Cause:
The money from the sale of these malas goes to support the education, clothing, food, emergency medical needs of the monks at Sera Monastery in India.
