    WHY 108 BEADS?

    The number 108 has long been considered a sacred number in Hinduism and yoga. Traditionally, malas, or garlands of beads for prayer, come as a string of 108 (or other number divisible by 9) beads, plus one for the “guru bead,” which is usually not counted.  These 18 yak bone beads follow this pattern to promote healing.  The yak beads bring you closer to nature and promotes spiritual practice through the contemplation of impermanence.

    ABOUT YAK BONE BEADS

    Bone is used in Tantric Buddhism to remind us of our impermanence and by doing so, we are inspired to make each moment meaningful. These beads are made by hand and acquired with reverence and care from naturally demised Yak animal, considered sacred and powerful in Tibetan Buddhist culture. Tibetan Monks honor the passing of Yaks as a spiritual experience and beads made out of their bones serves as a symbolic practice of passing from this world's consciousness to another. Contemplating death can prove beneficial to one's life, spiritually and otherwise.
