Tibetan Skull Mastodon and Rudraksha Wrist Mala

9   |  

An amazing men's wrist mala.  We sourced these 1 piece skull beads in Nepal.  They are hand carved from a single piece of water buffalo bone and strung alongside old bodhi seeds, prehistoric mastodon fossil beads from Thailand, and finished with a large rudraksha from India.  Hand strung in the USA here at the DharmaShop on stretchy cord.

Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras as well as other prayers.  "Bodhi" in Sanskrit means enlightenment; as an "enlightened" seed, many practitioners use these malas for their essence and inherent teachings within each seed.  

Rudraksha seeds are believed to increase concentration, providing clarity and peace of mind.  They’re also thought to improve memory and relieve stress.

The skull in Buddhism is often recognized as a symbol of impermanence.  It is a powerful reminder to be here now and to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.

Bracelet measures approximately 7 inches around not stretched.  Bodhi seed and mastodon fossil beads are about 13mm, rudraksha bead is about 18mm, skull bead is about 16mm long and 11mm wide.  **Due to the natural element of these beads, size may vary slightly.**

The dharma gates are endless I vow to enter them.

My son asked me if I would pick a wrist mala with deep meaning for him. This is the one picked. When I look at this I am reminded of the Buddha sitting under the Bodhi tree making a vow not to leave his seat until he reached enlightenment. The ocean seal samadhi. That we are of the nature to lose everything dear to us. That our ancient twisted karma is always present. That only in meditation (and with a teacher if we are so fortunate) can we enter the boundless dharma gates and find true peace. If we meditate with true intention when can hear the cries of all sentient beings and respond with true compassion. That must have really been amazing when the Buddha reached enlightenment, to see everything at once.



Letha, thank you for your feedback! We're so happy to hear that you chose one of our malas to give to your son and we're excited to hear that it has such a deep meaning to you. We hope it continues to serve as a reminder to yourself, as well as your son. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review and thank you for supporting Himalayan artisans!
