Bone bead malas are often used for meditation by Buddhist to remind them of the impermanence of our body's time on earth.
Impermanence, also called Anicca or Anitya, is one of the essential doctrines and a part of three marks of existence in Buddhism. The doctrine asserts that all of conditioned existence, without exception, is "transient, evanescent, inconstant".
