Rudraksha beads are known for their healing properties and protective powers. By meditating with a rudraksha mala, it is believed to increase the ability to concentrate, giving clarity and peace of mind.
A note about bone beads: In the Himalayas, it is typical for large animals such as yak or water buffalo to be used for service, food, clothing, and ritual items. Given the limited amount of resources and the religious practices of the people in the region, it is important that none of the animal goes to waste. These amazing bone beads are handcrafted by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.
Mala measures approximately 31 inches around with an adjustable knot. Rudraksha beads are 8-9mm. Skull beads are 10mm by 12mm.
