We have mixed inlaid bodhi seeds, red yak bone beads with copper and silver inlay, and hand carved yak bone skull-shaped beads to create this traditional and unique wrist mala.
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.
