Mala's hand crafted Prayer Beads by Toni
Malas are prayer beads used for reciting repetitions of prayers or chants called “mantras” and helped to facilitate ritualized mediation practice. They have been used for thousands of years in Tibet, India, China, and Japan. Prayer beads in different forms are used in Christianity and Islam as well.
Toni’s Malas are made with semi-precious gemstones, various beads made from bone, glass, natural materials, or wood. All of the malas are purified and blessed before they are sent off into the world. They are crafted for highly potent spiritual work as well as mind / body healing. The conscious combination of gemstone beads on your mala with your mantra can create a powerful synergetic force for healing, spiritual learning, and well being.
Toni uses 108 beads on her Malas which are used in Tibetan Buddhism, which is considered an Auspicious Number.
108 beads in Buddhism is said to represent the following formula:
6 x 3 x 2 x 3 = 108
6 senses of a human being: sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, thought
3 times: past, present, and future
2 conditions of heart: mind or intention, pure or impure
3 emotional states: like, dislike, indifference
Most Malas can be made to order. Actual colors may vary slightly from web images and also from stone to stone through nature.
Malas are generally one of a king or can be part of a limited series.
Prices Range from $48.95 + up depending on the stones and techniques used.
