The aromatic wood of the sandal tree has long been used for the blessing reliquaries and sacred objects. Sandalwood is considered universally auspicious for all spiritual practices. Counting mantras with this fragrant rosary will scent the fingers and may inspire a closer connection to the teacher or the deity. These sandalwood beads are purchased from a licensed dealer of sandalwood products and strung on high quality nylon coated wire by Tibetan artisans in Dharamsala. (108 beads.) Comes in a beautiful cloth bag.
This set of Prayer Beads, called a Mala or Rosary is made of finely selected, 7 mm, peppercorn sized, five mukhi rudraksah beads. Thread-knotted in traditional style with red tassel, this Rudraksha rosary is best for doing Japa or chanting mantras to all deities. You may keep it in your puja altar for positive vibrations or as a garland for your deity idol. You may also wear it around your neck. It is best to avoid wearing this with other rudraksha combinations. Measures 34 inches long which allows for it either to be worn around the neck or coiled around the wrist. Made with the Tibetan Buddhist's traditional number of beads: 108. Handmade in Nepal.
