This listing is for a sky blue with red string embedded yak bone Tibetan healing wrist mala bracelet. The yak bone beads are inlaid with turquoise, coral, brass, nickel, and copper. Turquoise is known for its ability to protect from outside influences and its ability to dissipate negative energy. Turquoise resonates with the throat chakra. Red coral represents diplomacy and concurrence. It is known to quiet emotions, bring inner peace, and facilitate intuition, imagination, and visualization. Red coral resonates with the base/root chakra. Brass, nickel and copper are known as healing metals in Tibet. Each bead measures approximately 7mm and 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.
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.
**due to the natural methods used to dye this product, these beads are not waterproof
