This sterling silver Lotus Bhum Counter is of fine quality and made by Flavio Crestana.
It is said that the lotus grows from dark, swampy waters into a perfect flower. It's beauty is a symbol of purity and freedom from suffering.
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 0.95" 0.59" x 0.039".
