Description of Buffalo Horn Tasbih
This beautiful 100 beaded tasbih is made of buffalo horn which consists of dense dark layers of fibres that have a very hard and durable surface. In fact, it is considered one of the toughest natural materials.
Symbolically, the buffalo represents a person's animal nature which he must master. He conquers this lower ego by taming and then riding the buffalo which ultimately amounts to living in the Spirit or Higher Self. As Rumi says:
Master your vicious ego and judgemental mind
then with clear purpose, silent and alone
you can start on your journey toward Spirit.
The moon will light the signs on your path
and lead you towards the place with no signs.
The beautiful names of God you have repeated enough
now enter the stage of knowing their essence.
No longer a seeker, you have arrived at the threshold
of the Divine, Now servant and king, apparent
and hidden, you have become silent as Spirit.
Rumi's Garden has the immense pleasure of bringing you the buffalo horn masbaha that was created in collaboration with a 5th generation Islamic prayer bead-making guild based in Egypt's old market in proximity to the Sayidna Husayn mausoleum.
