white yak bone mala
White yak bone mala
This traditional Himalayan mala is made up of yak bones. Given the limited amount of resources available in the Himalayas it is common practice to use beast of burden such as yak and buffalo for service and then slaughtered for consumption. None of the remains of the beast goes to waste as they are used for clothing, utensil and ritual items.
Yak Bone is said to represent strength and increase prana (life force energy). Its vibrant white color adds the beauty and uniqueness to this mala.
