Tibetan Embedded Yak Bone Medicine Healing Wrist Mala for Meditation - White/Black/Multi-Bead
This listing is for a healing wrist mala with a classic combination of white and black embedded yak bone medicine beads and a coral/turquoise inlaid bead. The yak bone beads are embedded with copper, nickel, brass and turquoise and coral. Yaks have played a significant role in Tibetan culture 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. Copper, nickel, and brass are believed to be healing metals in Tibetan culture. 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 quiets emotions and brings inner peace. Red coral resonates with the root chakra. Each of the yak bone beads measures approximately 7mm, the multi bead measures approximately 10mm, all strung with love by Hands of Tibet.
Prayer beads are most commonly used in Tibet, India, and Nepal for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are worn on either the left or right wrist while not in use, depending on the practice.
Suggested mantras for this mala (you can also reference our instructional video https://www.handsoftibet.com/how-to-adjust-our-wrist-mala-bracelet/):

How to adjust this wrist mala:
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 the yak bone, these beads are not waterproof
