Vintage Inlaid Himalayan Wrist Mala

3   |  

This handmade wrist mala features hand carved yak bone beads that are inlaid with pieces of turquoise, coral and brass tones on brown cord.  Each bead is unique!  Bone beads allow us to reflect upon the Buddhist teachings of impermanence.  They serve as a reminder to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.

A note about bone usage:  In the Himalayas, it is typical for large animals such as yak or water buffalo to be used for service, food, clothing, utensils, 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.

Adjustable wrist mala measures approximately 10 inches around when opened fully and tightens to about 7 inches around.  Beads are about 10mm.  Made in Nepal.

Beautiful Mala

Looks as striking in 3D as it does in the photo. A beautifully handcrafted item. This piece is redolent with spiritual energy, and it's a pleasure to know I'm supporting the artist that created it. Thank You Dharmashop!
