This listing is for a 108 bead yak bone with Yin Yang Design mala with three turquoise spacers for meditation. Yaks have played a significant role in Tibetan history and lifestyle for centuries by being used for transportation of goods, yak hair is used for fabrics and rope, and yak milk is used for cheese and butter. Yak bone represents impermanence and is said to maintain healthy blood circulation. In Tibetan culture, dZi beads are highly regarded for their protective properties and powerful spiritual benefits. Turquoise is known for its ability to protect from outside influences and its ability to dissipate negative energy. Turquoise resonates with the throat chakra. Each of the beads measures approximately 8mm and the mala can be wrapped around the wrist 3-4 times.
Prayer beads or mala are usually used for meditation, counting mantras and prostration and etc. Malas are worn on left wrist while not in use. Please contact me with any further questions.
