There are many mantras that we can use with our malas. One that helps us appreciate the impermanent nature of life is “this too shall pass”. A phrase that probably most of us say multiple times a day as a coping prompt during these pandemic times. But it is a good refuge to find comfort in all the time. When teaching workshops on mala making and particularly using a mala, I emphasize this one as one of my favourites. We would bring to mind various moments and experiences, relationships, both challenging and loving. With every image we would say softly, “this too shall pass”.
When we realize that the challenges and struggles that we are going through will pass, we activate a strength of endurance. When we realize the preciousness of beauty and act of kindness and love that is touching our lives, it’s important to also say “this too shall pass.” This helps us cherish more what is important and waste less time on negative emotions.
The wrist malas are lava, once active molten lava is a great calming stone that helps us bounce back from challenges. It imbues strength and courage. Lava also acts as a great essential oil diffuser. Put a few drops of your favourite essential oil on the stones, it’s porousness will allow you to enjoy the effect for the day.
