Tibetan skull malas are a type of Buddhist mala that are commonly used in the practice of meditation. These malas originated in Tibet, and have since been used as a way to contemplate the meaning of life and death during meditation. And help the user to develop a deeper understanding of the impermanence of life.

In Tibet, malas made of skull beads play a huge role in the cultivation of Tibetan culture. These skull beads are usually made from different types of animal bone, wood or gemstones. To the Tibetan people, skull beads are symbolic of honoring the beasts of burden, such as the Tibetan yak, which have served Tibetan people and their livelihood. Tibetan people also wear skull beads as a way of being reminded of the importance of honoring and serving their neighbors, just as the might beast of burden have served them. These skull beads are also worn as a way to help Tibetan people remain grounded and intoned with their natural world. And by reminding them that their lives are short-lived and subject to the laws of impermanence, they can live joyful lives filled with gratitude in each moment. A virtuous quality which can be seen in the smile and behavior of most Tibetan people.

This Skull Bone Mala Tibet is made from hand-carved old Tibetan yak bone which has been hand-carved into small skull beads and strung with durable rope and tassel.
