- An amazing mens wrist mala! Hand strung at the DharmaShop with elements sourced from around the world.
- Made with dark bodhi seed beads, prehistoric mastodon fossil beads from Thailand, and finished with a single large rudraksha bead from India. It also features a hand carved skull bead from Nepal made from water buffalo bone.
The skull in Buddhism is often recognized as a symbol of impermanence. It is a powerful reminder to be here now and to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.
Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras as well as other prayers. "Bodhi" in Sanskrit means enlightenment; as an "enlightened" seed, many practitioners use these malas for their essence and inherent teachings within each seed.
Rudraksha seeds are believed to increase concentration, providing clarity and peace of mind. They’re also thought to improve memory and relieve stress.
The ancient fossilized mastodon bone bead is truly a unique artifact from the prehistoric era. Because it is from the earth and was once organic material, these fossils have strong grounding properties and calming energies.
Bracelet measures approximately 6.5 inches around on stretchy cord. Bodhi beads are 13-15mm, mastodon beads are about 13mm, rudraksha bead is about 17mm, and the skull bead is about 17mm by 14mm. **Due to the natural element of these beads, size may vary slightly.**
