This is a beautiful mala, replacing one lost at some unknown place. It reminds me by its presence that compassion practice can always be my pathway.
I purchased this Mala in replacement to my previous one which scattered to the winds during an unfortunate encounter with a glass door. The stones are exquisite and harmonious in color and the ties are very easy to operate. My only complaint would be that it is slightly too small for a man's wrist as I have to slowly and carefully slide it on.
