This listing is for a rudraksha wrist mala with yak bone beads and a dZi bead. Rudraksha is known for its ability to aid in controlling stress, meditation, and promoting positive changes. Yak bone represents impermanence and is said to increase blood circulation. In Tibetan culture, dZi beads are highly regarded for their protective properties and powerful spiritual benefits. Both the rudraksha and yak bone beads measure approximately 7mm, but they may vary slightly in size due to their handmade nature. Each mala is strung by Hands of Tibet with love.
Prayer beads are often used in Tibet, India, and Nepal for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are worn on the left wrist while not in use. Please contact me with any further questions.
Suggested mantras for this mala:
"Om Muni Muni Maha Muni Ye Soha" to Lord Buddha Shakyamuni "Om Tare Turi Tutari Turi Soha" to White Tara "Tayatha Om Pekatse Pekatse Maha Pekatse Raza Samu Gati Soha" to Medicine Buddha
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.
