This sterling silver with cubic zirconia Endless Knot Bhum Counter is of fine quality and made by Flavio Crestana.
The endless knot represents the Buddhas endless wisdom and compassion. It also represents the continuity of the 12 links of interdependent origination, which is the underpinning of all of samsara, or cycling existence.
Bhum, pronounced "boom," is Tibetan for "100,000." Bhum counters can be clipped onto a mala to help keep track of the number of mantra recitations one has completed, either alone or in combination with a pair of counters. For example, you may use a bhum counter to keep track of thousands or hundreds of thousands of mantra by moving it along the mala, one bead at a time.
Measurements are 0.91" x 0.35" x 0.039".
