Made of buttery yellow jade, rich rosewood, and an antique amulet, this handknotted mala is one of a kind.
Rosewood offers protection and removes obstacles, while yellow jade brings a sense of joy and a lightness of being that allows you visualize what you really want, and brings some luck along the way.
Pictured on the amulet is the walking Buddha, signifying the time the Buddha spent after his enlightenment, walking amongst the people, teaching the middle way. When the walking Buddha imagery first appeared in 13th century Thailand, it was considered quite radical. Up until this point, the Buddha had always been depicted seated in meditation or standing, shown to have god-like and king-like qualities. The walking Buddha was revolutionary in that it emphasized his more human qualities. His left hand is raised in the Abhaya mudra, a gesture of reassurance. It serves as a beautiful reminder that the divine is no so very far away.
yellow jade: visualization + joy + good luck
