These Tibetan Skull Prayer Beads are made with 108 turquoise skull beads and are strung with durable non-stretchy rope.
Tibetan Skull Prayer Beads are a type of Buddhist mala which are commonly used during meditation. They originated in Tibet long ago, as a way for Tibetan people to contemplate the meaning of life and death while they meditated.
Skull malas are a favorite among Tibetan people. All across the Tibetan plateau, Tibetan people can be seen proudly wearing their skull malas. These skull malas are usually made with skull beads that are hand-fashioned from various types of animal bone, wood or gemstones. And each of these elements are symbolic of many important things.
To the Tibetan people, skull beads are symbolic of honoring the wild beasts, such as the Tibetan yak, which have served them and their livelihood. Through this, the Tibetans may also proudly wear their skull beads as a way of being reminded of the importance of honoring and serving their neighbors. Lastly, these skull beads help the Tibetan people to remain grounded and intoned with their natural world. By reminding them that their lives are short-lived and subject to the laws of impermanence, they live joyful lives filled with gratitude in each moment.
