Natural Green Agate Mala
About this Mala:
This amazing Natural Green Agate mala is handmade in California by a Tibetan Buddhist monk, with 6mm agate beads.
Green agate is said to increase compassion, generosity and a keen sense of justice. It is believed to enhance mental and emotional flexibility, improve decision making and resolve disputes. It transforms and eliminates negativity and soothes and calms, healing inner anger and tension creating a sense of security and safety.
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.
