The finest traditional Tibetan mala beads for your Dharma practice.

A mala (Tibetan: threngwa or trenwa) is an extremely sacred support for Tibetan Buddhists and Hindus alike. Since ancient times they have traditionally been used to help aid the practice of mantra recitations and deity yoga. Here the mala is seen to be inseparable from one's personal yidam and therefore they are no longer viewed as ordinary beads. Malas are believed to be charged with the energy of the deity and are treated with great reverence. They are also used to keep track of text recitations, prostrations or to help with other Dharma activities such as Mo divinations. Mantras are counted in order to complete important aspects of the practice and ultimately to bring the practitioner to liberation. Some mantrikas spend their lives accumulating many millions or even billions of mantras and thus achieve very high levels of realisation.

The benefits of reciting the mantra Om Mani Peme Hung

"It is mentioned in the tantras that by reciting this mantra, you will achieve the four qualities of being born in the Amitabha Buddha pure land and other pure lands; at the time of death, seeing Buddhas and lights appearing in the sky; the devas making you offerings; and never being reborn in the hell, hungry ghost or animals realms. You will be reborn in the pure land of Buddha or as a happy transmigratory being. "When one who recites ten malas a day goes swimming, whether in a river, an ocean or some other body of water, the water that touches that personís body gets blessed. It is said that up to seven generations of that personís descendents wonít get reborn in the lower realms. The reason for this is that due to the power of mantra, the body is blessed by the person reciting the mantra and visualizing their body in form of the holy body of Chenrezig. Therefore, the body becomes so powerful, so blessed that this affects the consciousness up to seven generations and has the effect that if one dies with a non-virtuous thought, one is not reborn in a lower realm. Thus, when a person who has recited ten malas of om mani padme hum a day goes into a river or an ocean, the water that touches the personís body gets blessed, and this blessed water then purifies all the billions and billions of sentient beings in the water. So itís unbelievably beneficial; this person saves the animals in that water from the most unbelievable suffering of the lower realms. When such a person walks down a road and the wind touches his or her body and then goes on to touch insects, their negative karma gets purified and causes them to have a good rebirth. Similarly, when such a person does massage or otherwise touches othersí bodies, those peopleís negative karma also gets purified. Such a person becomes meaningful to behold; being seen and touched becomes a means of liberating other sentient beings. This means that even the personís breath touching the bodies of other sentient beings purifies their negative karma. Anybody who drinks the water in which such a person has swum gets purified" ~Lama Zopa Rinpoche~

and The benefits of reciting Om Ah Hung Benza Guru Pema Siddhi Hung

"......if this essence mantra, the Vajra Guru mantra, is repeated as much as possible, a hundred times, a thousand times, ten thousand times, a hundred thousand times, a million, ten million, a hundred million times and so forth, if it is repeated in holy places, in temples, next to great rivers, in areas where gods and demons abound, if it is recited in these places by tantric practitioners with pure samaya, by people with monastic ordination who maintain their vows purely, by men and women who possess faith in the teachings, if they give rise to bodhicitta on a grand scale and recite this mantra, then the benefits and advantages and energy of such practice are truly inconceivable. This will avert all of the negative forces of disease, famine, unrest, bad harvests and all bad omens and indications in all the countries of the world. The rain will fall in a timely manner for the crops, so there will always be a plentiful supply of water for agriculture and for human and animal life, and all regions and areas will experience prosperity and auspicious conditions"
~Guru Rinpoche~


Large malas, traditionally made of 108 beads or in some traditions 111, are usually worn around the left wrist. Hand malas, made up of usually 27, 21 or 18 beads, can also be used for practice and are easier to use whilst doing prostrations. When counting, the mala is normally held in the left hand at the level of the heart, and one of the beads immediately next to the guru bead is used to register the first mantra. The thumb acts as a vajra hook and draws the blessing of the mantra towards you. Some believe that the energy of accumulated mantras is stored in the mala, one of the many reasons malas are cherished by those who use them. Bodhiseed malas are considered appropriate for counting all kinds of mantras, prayers, prostrations and circumambulations. Other types of stone, seed or coloured bead are used because of their association to a particular deity or form of practice. Crystal or conch shell beads are particularly appropriate for prayers linked with Chenrezig; sandalwood is valued for pacifying; bone can be used for wrathful practices. Tibetans also prize malas made of coral, lapis, turquoise and carnelian and these beads are often added to malas as extra spacers or to replace damaged or missing beads. Beads such as the dZi stone are amongst the most sought after of all Himalayan beads and are also added to malas as dividers.



Please click the sub categories above to see a wide range of traditional malas. We also have a wonderful selection of Himalayan beads which can be used as dividers or markers. We also stock hand malas, counters, guru beads and mala cord.

Many of our customers choose to have a unique custom made mala created. You are very welcome to email us with your individual requirements and we will do our best to provide for your needs.



Om Rutsira Mani Prawa Taya Hum

It mentions in the tantra named 'The Palace of Vast Jewels', that one should recite the above mantra seven times. After this, one should then blow on the mala to increase the power of subsequent mantra recitations.

Please contact us for the price.

A rare complete tantric mala or Trengwa comprised of 108 antique bone beads. The mala includes 108 disc shaped bone beads and three additional round bone bead dividers. All of the bone beads present on this mala were aquired together and none of the 108 beads are missing. The guru bead is comprised of an antique round bone bead and a beautiful antique turquoise bead, polished smooth from being worn and handling. On the tassle are two antique coral beads (7mm). There is a leather strung antique silver counter with all 10 counting beads present. This is also inlaid with antique coral on both sides and has been worn smooth from countless years of handling.

The previous owner aquired the bone beads in Tibet some years ago and was told by a Lama that they were crafted from human femur bone as apposed to human cranium. It is hard to say if this is true or not, so we are simply offering them as bone beads. In this condition and the fact that all are present is rare enough in itself. They have a wonderful usage patina and certainly feel very different from many other bone beads we have handled. They have been re-strung for ease of use as the original cord was no longer practical.
