Very pretty and well-crafted mala. The bone beads are smooth and fit my fingers . I am very pleased with the quality of this and other malas purchased on this site.
This mala is fantastic. I've had other bone malas, but this one is superior. My most recent mala was a bodhi seed one that received millions of recitations and was very worn out, and once the guru bead broke, it was time for a new one. At just over 50,000 recitations, this new yak (or dri?) bone mala is functioning beautifully and with great comfort -- it is certainly magnificent to see, but also just as wonderful to use.
Duncan, thank you for your feedback! We're so excited to hear that our bone mala is your favorite and even happier to hear that it is serving such a wonderful purpose in your life! We hope it continues to be an aid in your practice and we appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Thank you for supporting Himalayan artisans!
Absolutely love my purchases!!! My 108 Yak Bone Mala with Lapis is perfectly gorgeous! When I'm wearing it I envision a protective white light surrounding me & the weight of the Mala feels like a gentle hug. I am also very pleased with my Naga Shell & bone bracelet and Redwood, turquoise and Naga Mala! Delivery time was very speedy. And I'm proud my purchase helps the Tibetan artisans, a purchase with a purpose. Now my teenage daughter is asking for a Mala of her own. Time to shop ;)
