Wood Block Hamsa Candle

$ 14.00

Wood Block Hamsa Candle...beautiful, hand-crafted ambiance for your practice space.

chattra yoga bolsters, meditation cushions and bags are crafted using traditional  textile techniques:  Indian artisans press ink to fabric with hand-carved wooden blocks, resulting in beautiful, rich textile designs.  The wood blocks themselves are super lovely; so, we thought, why not make them into candle holders?  

The hamsa is a protective symbol associated with many faiths.  For Hindus and Buddhists, it symbolizes the interplay of the chakras, the energy flow in the body, the five senses, and the mudras that effect them.  Each finger is said to represent a different chakra:

Thumb...fire element, solar plexus chakra
Forefinger...air element, heart chakra
Middle Finger...ethereal elements, throat chakra
Ring Finger...earth element, root chakra
Pinkie Finger...water element, sacral chakra
