You guys are amazing!
By Western sensibilities, a necklace made of "bones and skulls" is odd and somewhat dark. Not so, this. Quite the opposite, in fact. I'm not a Buddhist, but I find the symbolism of impermanence to be comforting; a powerful reminder to be present and to value the time I have with people I care about. This mala calls to my mind Kind Solomon's "other" magic ring: The one inscribed with the maxim: "This, too, shall pass." Difficult times can be endured and happy times are to be treasured. Perhaps, this review is a bit too philosophical, so how about this: I absolutely treasure this mala. I use it to count my breaths. Then again, each breath is impermanent, too. Go figure.
Love the weight and feel of these beads.
It is just as I expected!
This mala is dope! I rock it around my neck when I’m wearing a hoodie or wrap it around my wrist.
