Red and Gold leaf mala
About this Mala:
This beautiful red and gold leafed glass mala is handmade in California by a Tibetan Buddhist monk, with 8mm beads.
The color red represents our power, energy, vitality, action, assertion, creation, survival and passion. While the color gold inspires knowledge, spirituality and a deep understanding of the self and the soul. In the meaning of colors, gold is generous and giving, compassionate and loving, the benefactor or patron, sharing its wisdom, knowledge and wealth with others.
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.
