108 Bead Red Wenge Rosewood Tibetan Buddhist Prayer Bracelet
Wenge is the wood of the Wenge tree, or Millettia laurentii. The Wenge tree is native to western Equatorial Africa, especially Zaire, Cameroon and Gabon. The lumber is used for general construction in the tree's home range. In North America, Wenge is considered an exotic wood.
African Wenge is a naturally Dark and Dense wood making these beads sturdy and durable, perfect for everyday wear. This Wenge bead necklace can be worn around the neck or wrapped around the wrist to create a stacked bracelet. Wenge is not only a beautiful wood to look at, but also a wonderful magical tool. It possesses a very relaxed energy, encouraging slow, even thought. It is the perfect tool for meditation, especially for those who have trouble slowing their thoughts. It is also a healing wood, useful for a variety of physical, as well and emotional healing applications. Worn on the body, this wood creates a more even mood and centered thought.
A common Mala Mantra is to recite the mantra 'Om Shanti' with each bead, 108 times. Om Shanti is a Sanskrit term, meaning God Peace or Divine Peace. The reason for reciting your mantra 108 times, is to fill all 108 Chakra meridians (Energy centers) with the energy of peace and love. This includes your vibration, as well as the vibration of your space.
Inspired by the great Buddhist values, this African Wenge Wood Mala Beads is a great way to showcase your spirituality and beliefs.
