Meditation Prayer Shawl - Purple Maha MantraMeditation or prayer shawls have been used for thousands of years in Tibet. Shawls are intended to surround and comfort the person during meditation practice. The prayer shawl is believed to hold the energy that accumulates, and produce a beneficial effect on the mind. As the body cools down during meditation, extra warmth is provided by the shawl, comforting the body, and preventing the mind from becoming distracted. This lightweight shawl is perfect for meditating, yoga or prayer. Use as a cover up, or as a light weight wrap to keep warm.
Made in India, the soft and light fabric is decorated with the Maha Mantra written in decorative Sanskrit letters and hand-printed by rural artisans of the Indian cottage industry. The contrast of the terracotta design on the purple cotton cloth highlights the sacred mantra. Nice quality, fine finish material, weighs just over 8 oz and measures 89" x 42". Dry clean recommended to protect printing. Otherwise hand wash, line dry.
Note: due to hand-printing, some imperfections may be visible.
