Carry a powerful reminder of Buddhism and impermanence with you during your daily meditation rituals or day-to-day life with our Onyx Skull Mala Bead Set.

These unique Tibetan mala beads feature black onyx beads with a matte finish, bone skull beads, and a yak bone guru bead strung along black string.

Natural black onyx stone is considered one of the best crystals to block negative energy because it functions like a protective talisman, warding off evils as they come. Associated with the powers of night, it helps the wearer gain greater composure and inner strength, resulting in increased confidence and clarity.

 

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 everchanging 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 story of yak bone malas here.
