A special kind of mala
This mala consists of 108 beads made of yak bone, inlaid with tiny pieces of coral, turkuoise and copper.
The yak is a treasure beast of burden to the people of the Himalaya region. It provides them with wool, leather, meat and milk.
The beads are recycled from old mala's and have a lovely weathered feel and look, making them very special to use.
This mala is suitable for Japa (chanting of mantras) or for wearing it around your neck for meditation, to obtain inner peace, finding inspiration and dedication.
A personal mala is a wonderful accessory to meditation which, when used regularly with a personal mantra, absorbs the vibrations of the practice.
It then becomes like a close friend or a comfortable piece of clothing!
A mala is a set of beads or rosary commonly used by Buddhists for counting mantra whilst reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating them; it also helps one to focus, concentrate and maintain awareness when meditating.
The mala beads are moved in rhythm with the breath and the mantra, so that both sleep as well as excessive mental distraction are prevented by this action upon the beads.
