Free US Shipping Orders Over $50

This beautiful mala was inspired by the Middle Way philosophy of finding a balance between life's desires and challenges. It's a reminder to cultivate mindfulness, wisdom, and inner peace, ultimately leading to spiritual awakening and freedom from suffering.

The Thai language represented on the pendant translates as:

หลวงพ่อ - "Venerable Father or Respected Monk" serves as a mark of respect and reverence for a monk or spiritual teacher as their guidance is highly valued on the journey of spiritual development.

ธรรมจักร  - "Wheel of Dharma" signifies the continuous cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth, as well as the path to enlightenment. 

สร้างบาระมี - "Create Merit" is the significance of one's actions and the notion that individuals possess the ability to shape their destinies through virtuous deeds.

The Middle Way Mala features 108 Tigers Eye and Obsidian gems plus 5 Carnelian spacers with accents of Turquoise and gold. It's unique Tibetan "One Eye" Dzi bead and a beautiful embossed Buddha pendant complete the look.

The Tibetan Dzi guru bead is called a "One Eye" meaning the bead of light, improving wisdom and thought. Tibetan Dzi beads are believed to bring positive spiritual benefits, this particular one made of agate.

Tiger's Eye aids in recognizing one’s talents and abilities and, conversely, faults that need to be overcome. Emotionally, the tiger’s eye balances yin-yang and energizes the emotional body.

Obsidian is a protective stone that repels negativity and disperses unloving thoughts. Brings clarity to the mind and clears confusion and narrow beliefs.

Carnelian with its vibrant orange to reddish-brown hue, is known for its energizing and motivating properties. It is believed to enhance courage, creativity, and vitality, while also stimulating ambition and drive.
