Water purification

To be proscribed for the wooden Malas obviously! Concerning stone Malas, again, this is about following the advocates given by the therapists.

Water purification is very often advocated, as it is both simple and effective. This will be done by using slightly salted water, since salt helps minerals to regenerate andto unloading himself from negative energy.

However, we must be careful, because some stones don't like water! This is the case, among other things, of grenate, azurite, pyrite and many others...

The smoke of incense, he'll appreciate

When meditating, it is advisable to light incense to anchor its practice, increase its concentration, and soothe the mind.

It's a great routine for maintenance of your Mala pearls. Indeed, these will then absorb smoke from incense and each of the pearls will immerse itself from its smell.

Sandal or or wadwood, cones, sticks or spirals, that's according to your preferences! No matter what incense, it's more the intention you're going to weartothe purification that is important here. Find out all our natural incenses.

  • Make him blessed beforehand by a Lama;
  • Then bless him yourself to convey all your energy to him;
  • Clean your hands and your Mala before using it.


Things to avoid

Things to avoid

The shower with Mala, you'll run away

It is a mandatory advice if your Mala is composed of wooden pearls. Indeed, if you bathe or shower, it is possible that water will infiltrate and inflate the wood.

Similarly, avoid storing it in a wet place or loaded with negative waves.

Lend your Mala, you'll avoid

Your Mala is associated with the warmth of your body and mind, he's sort of dependent on you.

So you have to avoid leaving your Mala in someone else's hands.

Playing with his Mala, you'll forget

He's tempting to trip to everything goes the pearls of his Mala when you're nervous.

However, we recommend that you keep your Mala in your hands only for the recitation of a mantra or to position it around your neck or wrist.

Don’t play with other times and don’t look for everyone to notice.

A Mala is a private accessory, keep a humble attitude toward him.

Put it on the ground, you won't

If possible avoid putting it on the ground or on a level below you.

For these last three points, of course, it is only things to avoid and only if your Mala has been blessed and that it has a true meaning for you. If you wear it as a jewel, these points are then optional.


My Mala broke, what do you do?

It is a purely personal advice, but if by use it was to yield, we advise you not to use it anymore and not to seek to fix it. We think that means that he has reached his limits and has received too much attention.

Instead, see the opportunity to acquire a new one and give you new goals to achieve!
