This listing is for a yak bone wrist mala with a tiger eye spacer. Yak bone represents impermanence in Tibetan buddhism. Tiger's eye aids in releasing fear and anxiety, finding harmony, balance, and courage. Tiger's eye resonates with the throat chakra. Each yak bone bead measures approximately 8mm and the tiger's eye bead measures approximately 10mm. Every mala is hand strung by Hands of Tibet with love. Prayer mala or beads are most often used by Buddhists around the world for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration, especially in Tibet, Nepal and India. Malas are worn on the left wrist while not in use. Please email me for more detail and I will be more than happy to assist you.
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.
