Description

This high-quality, 9mm Skull bead mala is one of the very special malas we offer. It is made from yak bone, delicately and ornately hand-carved in detail. The Skull Mala is often used in meditative practices and it is to remind oneself of the impermanent nature of all things. This is a full 108-bead mala with a tassel at the end. 

This mala is made from hand carved Yak bone. Yak is an important animal in Tibet as they are used as packing animals for the nomadic tribes. The Tibetans honor their passing by creating these beautiful malas and using them in their meditative practice so that the animals can continue to be of service as they pass from this consciousness to another. All the yak bones used in our jewelry  are the leftover from the domestic population that died from natural causes.

 

The Skull Mala is a Fair Trade item, made at the Drepung Loseling Monastery by Tibetan Monks and refugees.

The Drepung Loseling Monastery was Tibet's largest monastic institution, with a population over the centuries that ranged from 7,000 to 12,000 monks. Only 250 of these monastics managed to escape the Chinese Communist invasion of 1959; the remainder were killed or imprisoned. With the Dalai Lama's blessings, the monastery re-established itself in southern India in 1971. Since then, many young refugees have fled Tibet to join Loseling in the hope of receiving a traditional Tibetan education. The population of Drepung Loseling now stands at almost 3,000. The elders of the community support the young students through the proceeds from a small farm and several small cottage industries, including an incense manufacturing project, a carpet factory, and studios for creating traditional Tibetan arts and crafts. We support the efforts of Drepung Loseling to preserve the Tibetan culture among their young people.
