Red Bone Wrist Mala


    Created by Tibetan nuns living in exile, this wrist mala features a traditional and distinctive knotted finishing. Bone malas are often used for traditional practices to subdue the 'wrathful' elements. Wrist malas are used as an aid in counting prayers or mantras in a similar way to their full 108 bead mala counterparts. Beginning with the first bead to the right of the big Buddha bead, a mantra (or prayer) is recited while 'telling' the bead. This is repeated around the mala until the big Buddha bead is reached. The mala is then flipped and the count begins again. The big Buddha bead is not counted. Wrist malas are made with various numbers of beads. It falls to the practitioner to count the beads and determine the number of repetitions necessary to achieve the total desired for the practice or puja. Multiples of 108 repetitions are considered to be very auspicious.
