This set of Prayer Beads, called a Mala or Rosary is made of Sandalwood (Santalum album), a very fragrant, fine-grained, yellow wood from Asia.

You may also wear it around your neck. Measures approximately 30 inches long which allows for it either to be worn around the neck or coiled around the wrist.

Our Tibetan Buddhist table top prayer wheel, sometimes referred to as a Mani wheel, is brightly colored, reaches 4 inches tall, spans 2 inches in diameter and is constructed of copper and brass. Intricate filagree work graces the top and sides and colored cabachon stones decorate the top. The Buddhist mantra Om Mane Padmeis pieced around the outside of prayer wheel. The cylinder can be set in motion by manually twisting the top of the piece. The cylinder contains a paper roll on which Buddhist texts are printed. According to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on the lineage texts regarding prayer wheels, spinning such a wheel will have much the same meritorious effect as orally reciting the prayers. Use your prayer wheel to accumulate wisdom and merit (good karma) and to purify negativities (bad karma). Made in Nepal.
