Buddhist Wrist Mala - SandalwoodBuddhist Mala Beads are a tool of meditation. When moved in rhythm with the mantra, and breath of the meditation, the action of the beads helps to eliminate distraction. The Buddhist Mala allows you to focus the mind and incorporate more of the whole body in the meditation, as the mantra is chanted.
Our Buddhist Wrist Malas can be used for short meditations, or a reminder of lessons learned during meditation. They can also be used as a jewelry accessory.
Combining tactile and conscious awareness, the beads are moved sequentially in rhythm with breathing. Each mantra centers and stills the mind, allowing the focus to be on the meaning of the mantra, rather than counting the repetitions. Each time the mantra is repeated, the fingers move to the next bead. When using a Mala repeatedly, it is believed to take on the energy of the mantra that is being recited.
The refreshing and aromatic wood of the sandal tree has long been used for blessing reliquaries and sacred objects. Sandalwood is considered 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 deity. Sandalwood is said to purify negative energy and attract positive energy. It is also used for the attainment of prosperity.
Our wrist sized mala is handcrafted with 7mm-9mm beads. The Sandalwood mala is strung on high quality, stretchy nylon cord by Tibetan artisans in Dharamsala. This piece is acquired through Fair Trade Practices that celebrate the culture of Tibet.
Free mala bag is included to store and protect your beads. Due to the natural materials used, the color and the size of the beads may vary slightly.
