lapis malas are especially good for Medicine Buddha practices – 108 beads, 6mm. Color-enhanced, high-grade Afghani beads.
Lapis lazuli is associated with openness, inner power, intuition, and creativity. It is also believed to help build self-confidence, and in some cultures a sign of royalty. Lapis is also said to be a stone that prevents psychic attacks. In Buddhism, it is related to healing and wellness. The deep blue of lapis makes it an appropriate mala for accumulating mantras of deities whose main color is blue – deities such as Aksobhya, Cakrasamvara and Medicine Buddha. Afghani & Chilean lapis lazuli are considered some of the best in the world.
