The first Dalai lama conceptualized eight intentions for which mantras to the emerald-bodied goddess Tara can be used. They are: increasing life, creative energy, wisdom, renown, and for dispelling bad dreams, disease, hindrances and all distractions. The color green is the color of healing energy. What better way to do the practice than with this beautiful green quartz mala. 108 beads. Comes in a brocade storage bag.
