About Mala Beads
Mala Beads are used worldwide as a powerful tool in self healing and meditation. Their origin lies in the Buddhist Way of Life, which lays emphasis on victory over self and controlling your own mind and thoughts as a powerful tool for energy balance. Malas are like rosaries handcrafted with 108 beads, a number considered auspicious in ancient scripts and each bead helps to count the repetition of a mantra or repeat an intention. For using as an aid in Meditation, move through the Mala one bead at a time. The large bead, also known as the guru bead, helps to keep track. When you reach the guru bead, stop, reverse direction, and start again.
The Summit - highest point of a mountain, apex of a journey or as we like to say at Forziani, highest point of Aspiration. Each one of us has a desire to attain that one Summit in our lives, which is of personal and unique significance to us. Let Forziani's meaningful pieces from the Summit Series Inspire you to reach that highest peak of your own aspiration and journey in life, with its meaningful symbolism and powerful manifestations.
Bone beads have spiritual importance in Buddhism. They signify impermanence and our own mortality and encourage us to live a life of compassion with a knowledge that we will not be on this earth forever. This mala is made of water buffalo bone beads. Tibetan Monks honor the passing of animals as a spiritual experience and beads made out of their bones serves as a symbolic tantric practice of passing from this world's consciousness to another. Contemplating death can prove beneficial to one's life, spiritually and otherwise.
