Wood Triquetra Mala
Handmade, one of a kind 108 Wooden Beaded Mala with Black Silk Tassel.
Mala beads are a strand of 108 beads used for keeping count during mantra meditations. Malas can also be made of 54, 27, or 21 beads for use in shorter meditations. Malas can be used during meditation, they can be made from gemstones that match the intention of your practice, and often malas are placed in shrines as a reminder of affirmations. Malas are also referred to as mala beads, Buddhist beads or Buddhist prayer beads. Mala beads have been used in Buddhism and Hinduism for centuries.
The triquetra represents the three stages of life, particularly in women, described as a maid, mother, and crone. The aspects of the triple goddess are named the same, and thus it can also be a symbol of that particular concept.
The triquetra can also represent concepts such as past, present, and future; body, mind, and soul; or the Celtic concept of land, sea, and sky.
