A truly exclusive 108 bead mala from our new DharmaShop collection that includes lapis and onyx beads, a robust Mastodon fossil bead, and a hand carved lapis Medicine Buddha pendant. The Medicine Buddha is a deity of compassion and healing. He is believed to alleviate suffering for mental and physical illness. Often his image is shown with rays of lapis lazuli light radiating from his crown.
A prehistoric Mastodon fossil bead hangs from the center of the mala, along with a hand carved lapis Buddha pendant that has been fixed inside of a sterling silver setting. Lapis is said to promote self awareness, enlightenment and open the mind to all possibilities. It is also considered to be a powerful stone when used for mediation.
Onyx stabilizes, heals, and strengthens your root chakra so you may become more grounded and productive in the physical world.
Lapis and onyx beads are 8mm, Mastodon bead is about 14mm. Buddha pendant measures about 1 1/2 inch tall, 1 inch wide and 5/8 inch thick. Mala is approximately 35 inches around.
