Black Onyx Dragon Mala (108 Bead)

The Guru Bead

  • Our Black Onyx Dragon Mala directly supports the Root Chakra, generating an energetic protection for a clear state of calm, focused meditation. The Dragon Mala's beautifully detailed Guru Bead is forged in sterling silver in the form of a dragon's head. From the dragon's mouth coils a hand-tied 21 stitch braid, splitting into two cords, each capped with a sterling silver bead featuring the Wisdom Mantra, "Om Mani Padme Hum" in Sanskrit lettering. The two lateral marker beads are carved sterling silver dragons in flight. Opposite the Guru Bead is the focus bead, a beautiful Black Onyx capped by sterling silver petals in the shape of "The Seed of Life." 

    This is a traditional Buddhist 108 bead Mala, divided into 4 quadrants with 27 beads in each, separated by a marker bead that can be easily felt during closed-eye mantra repetition or breath focused practice. The mala arrives in our 100% recycled Chocolate Jewelry Box along with a beautiful padded Mala bag, handmade by dedicated Dharma Practitioners in Thailand.
