About Yak Bone Malas

Yak bone is associated with one of the three marks of existence in Buddhism: the concept of impermanence (anicca). This Buddhist philosophy reminds us of the ever changing nature of life; that nothing is forever and everything changes with the passage of time. Accepting impermanence is vital to both our mental and spiritual wellbeing, as it detaches us from that which is out of our control and insignificant in life. By teaching us to focus on what is rather than what isn't, a newfound sense of clarity and release is attained.

In Tibet, Yak bone is used to make a variety of goods, including Tibetan prayer beads. For thousands of years, people have relied on the yak, a species of cattle, for survival in the harsh climate of the Himalayas. These animals provide resources and labor that are essential to survival in one of the most rugged terrains in the world. You can learn more about the ethicality of yak bone malas here.

 

Materials: Disc-shaped yak bone beads (8mm) and bodhi seed guru beads (14mm) on adjustable brown string.

Note: 108 bead mala necklace measures approximately 9" in length and may be better suited as a wrist mala for some.
