Bone is a traditional material used in malas in both Nepal and Tibet. Bone represents the earth and our connection to it. Bone is also said to signify strength and to amplify prana (life force energy). Using a bone mala is a reminder of impermanence - the more we contemplate impermanence and death the more fruitful our life becomes. Yak bone is also said to maintain good blood circulation.
Tibetan Buddhist prayer beads Malas are also known as the Buddhist rosary, as a tool for repetition of a mantra during meditation. Prayer beads are used to count mantras, as your fingers pass over one prayer bead for each time you recite the mantra, which allow the mind to focus totally on the mantra, thus to achieve enlightenment easier.
