Sandalwood is a sacred wood with a lovely aromatic scent that is excellent for staying present and alert during meditation, which makes it wonderful for ritual and spiritual practice. Its fragrance is said to calm the mind and also to bring emotional balance.
Mala includes 108 fragrant sandalwood beads with one larger guru bead. This beautiful, sweet-smelling sandalwood mala is inlaid with turquoise, coral, and brass and can be worn as a necklace or wrapped around the wrist.
Mala measures approximately 30 inches around with an adjustable knot. Beads are 8mm, guru bead is 10mm. Handmade in Nepal.
Because our malas were made by our artisan partners in Nepal, a portion of profits rightfully belongs to the Himalayan community. BHANTI is partnering with the Himalayan Children's Fund to provide funds for education and medical clinics in India, Nepal, and Tibet.
