Japa Case with 108 8mm beads in Sandalwood painted red

Length: approximately 45 cm

It contains the endless knot (Buddhist knot) also known in Sanskrit as the eternal knot. For Buddhists, it is a symbol of connection between all beings and events representing the perfect harmony of the universe.

The endless knot is one of the “eight auspicious symbols” of Buddhism and has no beginning or end.

In Tibetan culture, the infinity knot is one of the most precious auspicious symbols because it represents the timeless teachings of Buddha.

In Tibetan Buddhism, the Buddhist knot also represents the Karmic cycle known as Samsara, which continues eternally until the soul attains liberation.

About Japa Malas

A Japa Mala, or simply suitcase (Sanskrit: ,いいい; mālā), refers to a series of accounts, popular in India and Buddhist countries, that are used to keep count while reciting, singing or mentally repeating mantras or the name(s) of a particular deity. In both India and Asia, the recitation of mantras is a very popular practice. As sacred utterances, mantras can be silently repeated or sung for different reasons and purposes. Used predominantly by Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs as auxiliaries of meditation and devotion, mantras are sound vibrations that instill concentration in the devotee and facilitate spiritual growth.

Japa Mala’s devotional practice resembles the Catholic use of the rosary – the Rosary. Both strings of beads help their respective religious believers record the number of times the prayer/mantra has been said.

The Sanskrit word Japa is derived from the Jap root, which means “to pronounce in a low voice, to repeat internally, to murmur”.

A wide variety of materials is used to make suitcase accounts. In Hinduism, the Vaishnavas usually use Tulsi’s Japamala beads. Shaivites use the Rudraksha beads. Aghori practitioners usually use human skull fragments for their bags.

Some Tibetan Buddhist traditions call for the use of bone (animal, more common yak) or sometimes human, with past Lamas bones being the most valuable. Others use wood or seeds from the Bodhi tree or seeds from the Lotus plant. Semi-precious stones, such as Cornaline and Amethyst,can also be used. The most common and least expensive material is sandalwood. In Hindu Tantra, as well as in Buddhist Tantra or Vajrayana, the materials and colors of beads can relate to a specific practice.

There are several pieces and all of them vary in color, size and texture because they are natural crystals and unique in their essence
