Description
 

Very rare antique Thangton Gyalpo Iron Mala. The iron beads have the Mani Mantra on them. The beads come from iron from bridges built by the legendary Thangton Gyalpo.

Thangton Gyalp was known has Chakzampa the bridge maker. He built iron bridges in both Tibet and Bhutan some that are still standing today during the 1400's. He was an emanation off Guru Rinpoche. He founded the Iron Lineage of the Shangpa School.

In Tantric Buddhism mala's have 108 beads used to count mantras one mala counts as 100 and the eight extra are to be dedicated to all sentient beings the practice as a whole is dedicated at its end as well. Some practices suggest that you use a certain kind of mala for counting the chants that are part of that specific practice. Many people like to wear a mala on their wrist, which should always be on the left hand.
