OUR VISION

Our mission is to be of benefit to others through everything we do. That is why for every mala sold, we make a donation to The Tibet Fund, a charity that is dedicated to preserving the culture, language, education, and heritage of Tibetans living in exile.

The Buddha taught that when we practice generosity, it produces a sense of joy and dismantles our egocentric frame of mind, deepening our practice and understanding of our intrinsic nature. Generosity helps cultivate moral discipline and allows us to be more loving, kind, and compassionate to one another; our positive actions help to generate merit or good karma.

When you purchase a Mala of Merit, you not only benefit yourself, you also benefit the lives of others.

OUR MISSION

When you purchase a Mala of Merit, you will be giving back to those in need. In Buddhism, merit signifies the measure of generosity resulting in the accumulation of positive Karma. When we practice generosity, it increases joy and dismantles our egocentric frame of mind, thereby deepening our practice and understanding of our intrinsic nature. The practice of generosity helps cultivate moral discipline, which consists of loving-kindness, compassion, altruistic joy, and equanimity. These qualities are then extended outward to benefit all sentient beings.

Inspiration for this mala:

Making the commitment to grow takes immense courage and often the most profound experiences are born out of confronting the darker sides of our consciousness.

 

Negative and intrusive thoughts create a tremendous amount of suffering in our lives. Contemplative practices reveal the nature of thought to be nothing more than an illusion created within the mind. When thoughts inevitably arise during meditation, we are taught to turn our attention to the thought itself. Where is the thought? Can you see or touch it? These practices provide a window into the nature of consciousness. When we cast light onto the shadows of ourselves, we are able to break free from our mental shackles and eliminate unnecessary suffering.

 

Howlite is a unique stone believed to make a direct connection from the root chakra to the crown chakra, keeping you grounded while getting in touch with your spiritual nature. Labradorite is considered a deeply spiritual stone and is used for spiritual healing and protection against negative energy. Snowflake obsidian is used to dissolve trauma and fear while observing dark and uncomfortable sides of consciousness. The pattern on snowflake obsidian is believed to reveal patterns in our thoughts and behaviors.

 

Each Mala of Merit includes a Bodhi seed gathered from trees in the forest of Bodh Gaya. the very same forest the Buddha attained enlightenment.
