According to Tibetan Buddhist belief, Mahakala is a fierce and wrathful protector buddha. He is also part of in Hindu beliefs, where he is a manifestation of the powerful god Shiva.

The Mahakala Black Bone Bracelet features flat, disc-shaped beads made of pigmented yak bone. It is accented with a single hand-carved bead depicting the face of mighty Mahakala Buddha.

Tibetans utilize the yak in almost every aspect in daily life, from transportation to making clothing and food. The use of yak bone in ritual items, such as prayer malas, is a way to show appreciation for all the animal provides while not letting any part of it go to waste. It also serves to remind the Tibetan people of the concept of impermanence (anicca) and the cycle of birth and death. You can more about yak bone jewelry here.

About Mahakala

His appearance can vary, but the wrath of Mahakala consistently translates into his fearsome visage. He is often depicted with additional arms and eyes while baring sharp teeth, surrounded by massive flames that devour all ignorance.

Mahakala's wrath should not be mistaken for evil, though. He does not seek to do harm - rather he functions as a relentless guardian who eliminates evil spirits, negative energy, and all that which threatens the Truth of the Dharma.
