These Tibetan Bone Skull Beads are made from old Tibetan yak bone and hand-carved into small skull beads and then strung with durable stretchy cord.
Tibetan Bone Skull Beads 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 and skulls are symbolic of many important aspects of Tibetan culture, and play a huge role in the cultivation of the culture. These skull beads are usually made from different types of animal bone, wood or gemstones. And each of these elements are symbolic of many important things as well.
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.
