I have bought many malls from all over the planet and this one is my favorite. Also the most I ever spent on a mala and I have some made out of unique gems, including Swarovski crystals, but this is still my favorite, which is why it sits the highest on my Buddha (look to the top right of the photo) so I can grab it first. I also have so many malas in the cabinet below, including some blessed by the Dalai Lama.
I originally picked up a different necklace mala to use during meditation but didn't realize it didn't have a head bead. I decided to pick up this one instead and it's absolutely perfect! They even let me return my previous mala with 0 questions or hassle. DharmaShop is my go to.
I have at least 2 dozen mamas from various places, some done by institutions that where blessed by the Dalai Lama. However, this is my favorite mala. I think it is due to being Bodhi and having my favorite mantra. Regardless, it is constructed well and I would recommend to all. Nameste.
I love the feel of it and find it very soothing during meditation, or just the tactile feel of it. Sometimes I just rub it for calming myself whenever I’m anxious. I truly love it.
Ive had sleeping problems, where i could not fully fall asleep for a day or 2. Nothing worked???? The first night of having this mala, i slept 12 hours? Ive had this mala for a while now and only had 2 nights i could not sleep. I wrap it on my right arm and smell it before i go to bed. Don't know how or why this works but it does. I also meditate with it thru out the day. I did change the cord to a 95 paracord which i had to make the holes bigger. Its a definite by.
