Bone mala beads meaning: The skull is used in meditation to reflect upon death and how our true nature is spirit and therefore not dependent upon our physical bodies for existence. It helps the meditator accept physical death knowing that the spirit is what is real and by embracing death we can live a more fearless life and make the most of the present.
