Tiger Eye Mala
About this Mala:
This amazing Tiger Eye mala is handmade in California by a Tibetan Buddhist monk, with 6mm tiger eye beads.
Tiger Eye brings good luck to the wearer. It is believed to have the power to help focus the mind and promote mental clarity, assisting one to resolve problems objectively, unclouded by emotions. It is said to aid in healing the eyes, throat and reproductive organs. Also to alleviate pain, help to heal broken bones and strengthen the spinal column. It is also useful for healing psychosomatic illnesses and can dispel fear and anxiety.
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.
