Our newest mala from the Strength and Healing Collection is available in two sizes - choose the size that best works for you! This exclusive DharmaShop design features 108 matte Howlite beads with brass spacers, an antique brass guru bead, and a Granite skull pendant. The pendant is completely hand carved and detailed with precision before being fixed in an intricate brass setting.
In Buddhism, the skull is often recognized as a symbol of impermanence. This mala is an amazing way to reflect on impermanence in your daily practice. It is a powerful reminder to be here now and to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.
Spiritually, Howlite is a stone of awareness. It is a wonder stone for calming upset states of mind and emotion. Howlite decreases an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, and anxiety, bringing calm and relaxation.
