Senior Lamas of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery recommend crystal malas as most suitable for the practices of peaceful deities, especially for Vajrasattva, Avalokiteshvara, and Buddha Shakyamuni.
Crystal has purifying qualities, and will neutralize negativity in the environment surrounding the wearer. It is one of the best stones for meditation, as it opens all the energetic centers (chakras) and channels and allows for the free flow of vital energy. Crystal stimulates spiritual growth and psychic abilities.
The pure crystal mala has been blessed by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche.
108 beads of 7 mm diameter, with Trikaya guru beads. White bead (conch shell) symbolizes Nirmanakaya, red (carnelian stone) Sambhogakaya, blue (lapis lazuli) Dharmakaya. The mala has a sliding knot to make it tighter or looser. Approx. length 84 cm, weight 80 g
