- On our trip to Nepal in March of 2019, we worked alongside of our artisans in Kathmandu to help design this 108 bead mala.
- It's made with a combination of fossil jasper and riverstone beads with brass accents. The gorgeous and glossy riverstone features a variety of earthy, woodsy colors to accentuate a natural style.
- The mala is finished with a shiny brass Cheppu pendant that Sander, DharmaShop's founder, sourced on his last visit to Taiwan. We brought them directly to our mala makers in Nepal to create this truly exclusive DharmaShop design!
Cheppu, known as the mask of protection, can be seen at the main entrance of many stupas and homes as a protection from all dangers.
The powerful energy of riverstone is said to accelerate change. It is very useful when performing meditation or therapy, as it helps to move more swiftly through the process and focuses on energy to do so.
Fossil jasper helps you with self expression and eases fear of the unknown. It is a protective and grounding stone, and is especially useful for healing.
Mala measures approximately 36 inches around. Beads are 8mm. Cheppu pendant is about 0.75 inch.
