Buddha chitta mala 9-9.5 mm
Natural BuddhaChitta Mala
Our Buddha chitta malas are made from the natural Buddha chitta seeds that comes from the Timal area of Nepal. A hole is made on the seeds after the seeds are harvested and cleaned so that they can be beaded to make this mala. This Buddhist Prayer Mala is used to count Mantra. It helps to keep track of time while praying or meditation. Buddhist prayer beads are also called 'japa mala' or 'Buddhist rosary'. These are typically 108 beads in a mala, which includes one large bead which is the guru bead. This mala is made intentionally made very simple with no tassels attached for its simplicity. It is perfect for yogis and people who are just starting out on meditations.
All Buddha chitta mala seeds have distinctive innate symbolic face (mukhi) pattern embedded in them. These symbolic mukhi pattern also comes in various forms for example most common ones are two mukhi pattern, they also come in three, four, five and six mukhi patterns. Buddha chitta mala varies in size also. The standard size is 12- 14 mm which are about the size of a standard marble. There are larger Buddha chitta seeds which can go up to as large as 18 mm and as small as 6 mm which are very hard to find even in Nepal and Tibet Buddha chitta market. The more eye pattern Buddha chitta seeds have and the more the size of the mala vary from the standard size, more sacred and scarce they are, which makes them highly sought after commodity and very expensive to buy even in Nepalese mala market.
This mala features buddha chitta beads 9 mm-9.5 mm as shown in picture. All the beads are 2 mukhi beads which is also known as the phoenix eye beads.
Buddha chitta mala is the holy grail of all the modern beaded mala these days made from different gemstones, bones, woods and others as they are all inspired from these traditional mala beads which are used for their aesthetic values as well as their use in meditation and yoga.
The large beads with the grip aids perfectly for counting mantras and repetitions. The large beads makes this mala lengthy as well but wearing it by doubling the mala around the neck will add even more beauty and character of the mala wearer.
** Natural Buddha chitta mala changes its original color from light brown to dark brown over time gradually. The color change process speeds up when used regularly. It takes years for natural Buddha chitta seed to even change slight color naturally without artificial coloring. So darker the natural budda chitta mala is more highly it is viewed for its authenticity and value. This is also the reason for slight color variation in the beads & mala.
