Item Description

 

Enrich your mantra practice with this Lapis Prayer Mala from Pink Lotus Thangka and Dharma in the UK. 

Each of the beads measure approximately 8.5mm in diameter and 101g in weight. The holes are centrally aligned and the beads are strung on a good quality cord with an adjustable slip knot at the guru bead allowing the user to control spacing.

The mala comes with an ornate drawstring bag; colour and design may vary.

Pink Lotus Thangka and Dharma was developed as a means to support Nepalese artisans struggling in Nepals poor economic climate. "Skilled artists and craftsmen were being driven from their trade by financial hardship and many were taking to manual labour abroad. The net result was a gradual erosion of skills that dated back many centuries." Pink Lotus supports these artisans and to tries to preserve their rich culture by providing an outlet for their work.

And says Gary, "If you're ever in the area please feel free to visit. The kettle's always on and you will be made to feel very welcome."
