Associated with the seventh chakra, the crown chakra, amethyst promotes calm and clarity, healing and protection.  It  stimulates and soothes the mind and emotions and is used for inspiration and to enhance intuition.  Energy balancing and uplifting, amethyst promotes effective communication.  Lovely purple amethyst beads.

In Buddhist tradition,108 is the conventional number of beads for malas, representing the 108 kleshas that cloud the mind.  In Hinduism, Vedic mathematicians believed 108 represented the wholeness of existence. Some have said there are 108 stages of the human soul’s journey, and others link spiritual enlightenment with taking 108 breaths a day while meditating. In yogic tradition, the body has 108 sacred places.  Others say malas have 100 beads for mantra recitation plus 8 extra for miscounts!

Sequentially touching the 108 beads of a mala while reciting mantra centers the mind and focuses the breath.  Om Mane Padme Hum is the ancient Tibetan mantra related to the bodhisattva of compassion; many also recite the Buddha’s name; or select your own personal mantra.

chattra's Tibetan Nuns 108 Bead Amethyst Mala comes in a re-usable pouch.  Mala made in India by Delek Dolma (pictured above with chattra founder Ann), Buddhist Nun, Dolma Ling Nunnery, Dharamshala, Kangra District, Himachal Pradesh, India.
