About A Kurious Life Malas

Malas are approximately 22” in length using a combination of primarily 6mm beads. The size and weight of the 6mm bead make it ideal to wear for long periods of time without being too heavy or long.  .5mm nylon string is hand-knotted in between each of the 108 beads to seal in the intention of the mala, while adding to the strength and durability for extended wear. The guru bead hangs at about the solar plexus level on someone 5'4" tall. The tassel is 100% cotton.

Anatomy of the Mala

Guru Bead-The guru bead is the anchor of the mala and pays homage to our teachers by reminding us that we are always learning. When we use the malas to meditate by repeating our intention while palpating each bead, we don’t cross over the guru bead. We go back in the other direction to signify constant learning and personal growth.

Why Skulls? Skulls are a memento mori, a reminder of our mortality and the impermanence of everything, including the stressors and problems we think are enormous.

Tassel-The tassel is symbolic of lotus roots, reminding us that our greatest strength comes from the muddy and dirty waters below. It connect us with our own strength to find enrichment from the “muck” in our lives.
