Hand Mala Beads, Mantra Prayer Beads
This is a shorter version of the full-size set of mala beads, handy for shorter prayer and meditation times. The set comprises 12 beads in total, with 3 beads separated at the front and 9 beads following.
This is a petite set, ideal for keeping in a pocket or handbag, or your desk drawer for use in those quiet moments in a busy day. The beads are just 6mm round, with 3 white howlite and 3 black onyx beads in the set.
There is a dragonfly charm separating 3 beads from the other 9. The dragonfly symbolizes change - change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental & emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life. The traditional association of dragonflies with water comes from its flight across water which represents the act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life.
The front 3 beads can be used to count refuge prayers, with the other 9 beads for 3 sets of mantras, or the set of 12 beads can be used for 4 mantras. All the beads are separately hand-linked with silver art wire which gives this small set good flow through the hands. At one end is a Buddha bead and at the other is a silver pewter Om symbol.

Om symbol: 2.5cm / 1 inch tall.
A lovely wee set for your pocket, which would also make a thoughtful gift for another. They come attractively wrapped.
