PAIR IT WITH

  • I have never had such strong positive reactions to a mala before.  I sold one of these right off my neck at a Starbucks one morning.  I wear this mala often and get comments all day long!
  • Made in Nepal, it features 108 naturally stained water buffalo bone beads with hand carved bone skull beads.
  • This mala serves as a powerful reminder to be here now and to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.

My Buddhist practice revolves around impermanence.  We live only in the present moment and it is helpful to remember that nothing lasts.  Skulls are featured prominently in Tibetan symbolism and many of our DharmaShop customers are fond of this reminder that nothing lasts forever.

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 36 inches around.  Beads are about 10mm.  Skull spacers are 10mm by 12mm.

Beautiful and Magical

This mama was for a Sister of mine so my review is late however she loves them. She stated they are crafted well and love the buffalo skull elders on it.

Impermanence Mala

Showed up even more beautiful in person. I really like how strong the cord feels.

Beautiful Mala

I use this more for decoration rather than wearing, but I love it & it looks great hanging around a painting.

I was searching for a bone beaded mala but wasn't sure about the darker color beads. I decided to follow the great ratings of others and am so pleased that I did. Wonderful feel and sound to them. Tightly corded but that will loosen over time. I recommend too!
