Senior Lamas of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling monastery recommend agate malas as most suitable for magnetizing practices and particularly for deities such as Amitabha, Amitayus, Guru Rinpoche, Guru Dewa Chenpo, Kurukulle, and Vajrayogini.
Agate stone is connected to the root chakra and fire element. It has stabilizing qualities, it brings the wearer “down to earth”, gives strength and feeling of safety. It stimulates spiritual growth. In meditation practices it helps with concentration.
The agate mala has been blessed by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche.
