This beautifully simple, slightly fragrant 108 bead sandalwood mala is lovely.  Considered one of the purest substances, sandalwood's gentle fragrance relaxes the mind and increases spiritual energy for meditation and heightened awareness. 

Sandalwood malas of 108 beads are a Buddhist tradition; in Buddhism, 108 is the conventional number of beads for malas, representing the 108 kleshas that cloud the mind.  In Hinduism, Vedic mathematicians believed 108 represented the wholeness of existence. Some have said there are 108 stages of the human soul’s journey, and others link spiritual enlightenment with taking 108 breaths a day while meditating. In yogic tradition, the body has 108 sacred places.  Others say malas have 100 beads for mantra recitation plus 8 extra for miscounts!

Sequentially touching the 108 beads of a mala while reciting mantra centers the mind and focuses the breath.  Om Mane Padme Hum is the ancient Tibetan mantra related to the bodhisattva of compassion; many also recite the Buddha’s name; or select your own personal mantra.

Comes in zip pouch repurposed from chattra fabric scrap cuttings; we'll select a pouch for you.  Made in India.
