This set of Prayer Beads, a Mala or Rosary, is made of Sandalwood (Santalum album), a very fragrant, fine-grained, yellow wood from Asia. Treasured for centuries, having a slight, but lovely, sandalwood scent. 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 or coiled around your wrist.
Made with the Tibetan Buddhist's traditional number of beads: 108. Includes a guru bead, called the three-hole bead or tower bead. Embellished with a gold tassel strung from a guru bead. Handmade in Nepal.
