Malas, also known as Buddhist Prayer Beads, are a traditional tool used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra. They have been used for thousands of years by many different cultures and religions. They contain 108 beads to signify the 108 stages of the human soul. Wear your Mala either as a necklace or as a bracelet wrapped around your wrist.
Linked to the magical tiger, the king of beasts in Eastern mythology, Tiger Eye portrays courage, integrity, and power. It invokes primal instinct and increases our connection to nature and animals. Tiger Eye is a vigilant stone, bringing a sharpness to one’s vision and understanding. Wear or carry Tiger Eye to increase insight and perception in unfamiliar places or circumstances, and for protection against the negative intentions of others. Tiger Eye is most closely associated with the solar plexus chakra.
