This listing is for a Tibetan Buddhist embedded yak bone medicine wrist mala/ bracelet for meditation, counting mantras etc. There are 23 yak bone beads altogether inlayed with turquoise and corals and Each bead measures 8mm approximately and beads came from Nepal and hand strung by myself.
Prayer beads usually used for meditation, counting mantras, prostration and so on. Wrist malas are used for prostration especially.
Malas are worn on the left wrist while not in use. You can usually see monks using malas in those Tibetan monasteries around the world. In those Tibetan Buddhist philosophy university, monks use the regular mala for debating. Anyway this particular mala is great for doing meditation on impermanent, because it is made from dead animal's bone. Just let me know if you have any other questions. How to Adjust the bracelet
1. Hold the mala with the knots at the top. Use thumb and forefinger from each hand to hold beads on either side of the knots. (Left hand hold bead on left, right hand hold bead on right) 2. Pull hands apart and away from the knots. You can pull pretty hard! 3. To tighten, pull small beads at the end of the string.
