- Hand strung here at the DharmaShop, this wrist mala features a combination of lotus seed and onyx beads.
- The combination of slightly textured and natural lotus seed beads and hard, smooth onyx is great for promoting concentration during meditation.
- A silver Buddha charm from Nepal hangs from the bracelet, serving as a reminder of your practice and of the Buddha's infinite wisdom.
The lotus flower is prized and honored among Buddhists. The pure, delicate flower arises from bogs and slowly develops a beautiful seed head from which these seeds are extracted. The dried seeds are then smoothed and sealed to make great, long lasting beads. The texture, weight and size of the beads are ideal for daily mantras and wearing.
Onyx is worn to defend negative energy that is directed at you; it fortifies self confidence and responsibility. Onyx stabilizes, heals, and strengthens your Root Chakra so you may become more grounded and productive in the physical world.
Adjustable wrist mala measures approximately 6.5 inches around when fully tightened and opens to about 9 inches. Lotus seed beads are about 9mm and onyx beads are 8mm. Buddha charm is about 0.6 inch.
