NEW LONG LENGTH HANDMADE TIBETAN MALA / BUDDHIST PRAYER BEADS (GREEN YAK BONE)




















Beautiful string of handmade Tibetan Buddhist mala prayer beads.

Length: approximately 72cm

Material: Yak bone (this is a natural product, there will therefore be colour variations within each piece)

Colour: Dark Green, brown string

Origin: made by Tibetan exiles in Dharamashala

 

Prayer beads are used to count devotions/ matras and are always carried by Buddhist priests and frequently by lay Buddhists especially at weddings, funerals and other ceremonial occasions.  

Malas or prayer beads are sanctified by being blessed by a priest over a cloud of incense.

Buddhist prayer beads also known as mala and are similar in form and function to worry beads associated with many religions.  Mala are thought to have originated in India around 500 BC as a counting aid for religious pupils who were required to repeat their prayers a specific number of times but who were unable to count. 

Mala are used such that one prayer or mantra is recited for each bead.  The counting starts with the guru bead (bead with tassel) which is thought to represent the Buddha and proceeds all the way around the string.  When the guru bead is again encountered the counting may then continue in the opposite direction.  The bead count is commonly interrupted in only two places (besides the guru bead) indicated by slightly smaller beads which are thought to represent mid-level Buddhas and humans on the verge of enlightenment. 

There are various explanations as to why these necklaces contain 108 beads, one being that one mala consists of 100 mantras, with the additional 8 beads being dedicated to all other sentient beings. 

Mala, like worry beads the world over, are commonly carried by religious clergy and devoted believers.  The beads are thought to help individuals seeking spiritual focus and are often cited as a source of comfort, peace and protection by those who use them regularly.

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE WIDTH OF THESE BEADS AND THE PROTECTIVE BUBBLE WRAP USED IN PACKAGING, THEY CANNOT BE SHIPPED AS A STANDARD LETTER...THUS EBAY 500G SATCHEL RATES APPLY. THIS INCLUDES A TRACKING NUMBER FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND.
