Skull Mala and Ring
The skull is simply a symbol for impermanence. It is used in several different kinds of rituals and religious art as a reminder of your own death. The concept of impermanence and continuous becoming is central to early Buddhist teachings. It is by becoming aware of it, by observing it and by understanding it, one can find a suitable remedy for the sorrow of human life and achieve liberation from the process of anicca or impermanence.
