This beautiful handmade yak bone bracelet is made of red embedded yak bone and white (natural) bone beads. A wrist mala for meditation, Yaks have played a significant role in Tibetan culture and lifestyle for centuries by being used for transportation of goods, yak hair is used for fabrics and rope, and yak milk is used for cheese and butter. Yak bone represents impermanence and is said to maintain healthy blood circulation.
Prayer beads are usually used for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are usually worn on the left or right wrist while not in use (the wrist it is worn on is typically determined by the mantra or practice). Please contact me with any further questions.
How to adjust this wrist mala:
1. Hold the mala with the long knot at the top. Use thumb and forefinger from each hand to hold beads on either side of the knot (left hand holds the bead on the eft, right hand holds the bead on the right).
2. Pull hands apart and away from the long knot. Our malas are usually knotted a little tight so you can pull pretty hard!
3. To tighten, pull small beads at the end of the strings.
