Antique Lotus Seed Mala - 8 mm

( 1 Review )

This is a rare brown Lotus Seed Mala. The seed beads have been expertly restrung after many decades of service in sacred practice.

The Lotus is a symbol of Spiritual growth and the ability to overcome obstacles on the path to Enlightenment, as evidenced by the the very nature of how it expresses in this existence. The Lotus grows through thick, muddy waters as she Allows Life to nurture her into a beautiful flower. When it rains, the droplets do not stick to the flowers’ petals but rather slide peacefully back into the water. Everything Is Allowed. The Lotus maintains her peace, beauty and purity through all obstacles she faces. She does not allow herself to be distracted by the external world.

In Tantric Buddhism, malas have 108 beads that are used to count mantras. One mala counts as 100 and the eight extra are to be dedicated to all sentient beings. The practice as a whole is dedicated at its end as well. Some practices suggest that you use a certain kind of mala for counting the chants that are part of that specific practice. Many people like to wear a mala on their wrist, which should always be on the left hand.

All Zambala malas are handmade in Nepal and on the Tibetan plateau, then each is blessed by a Tibetan Buddhist Lama.

30 Day Satisfaction Guarantee—you can return your mala for any reason within 30 days for exchange or a full refund.

Hard to Find

I've bought a few antique malas from Zambala and they are exceptional. This is one of the least expensive, but I enjoy it as much as the others.
