The aromatic wood of the sustainably harvested kadam tree is our choice for replacing our traditional offering of Sandalwood malas. Kadam tree flowers provide an enticing fragrance. Commercially, they are used in the creation of attar, a scented oil for Indian perfumes, as well as all kinds of carpentry. The flowers are associated with the monsoon season when they are known to bloom. The monsoon thunder signals the buds to open, and the winds become laden with their perfume. Even the hollows of kadam tree trunks collect rain water flavoured with the kadam flower sweetness. Counting mantras with this fragrant rosary will scent the fingers. Comes in a beautiful cloth bag.
This large and long mala is handmade from high-quality bodhi seeds strung on red cord. Each bead is 12 mm wide. Beautiful turquoise spacer beads help guide you around the mala.

Two lotus flower bum counters are also affixed to the strand of beads for tracking the higher number of recitations. 46 inches around. Finished with red knotted twin tassels. Handmade in Nepal.
