Shawls help to surround and comfort you during meditation practice. The prayer shawl is believed to hold the energy that accumulates, and produce a beneficial effect on the mind. When 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 lightweight wrap to keep warm.
This shawl is made in India of 100% natural fiber of the Jute plant. The Jute plant grows abundantly in India, is highly renewable and actually helps fortify the soil for other crops adding to the sustainability of our Universe. The soft, lightweight fabric is produced from the best fibers known as 'golden fiber'. The shawl is hand-printed by rural artisans of the Indian cottage industry. They hand-stamp the mantra Om onto the fabric with metal stamps dipped in vegetable ink. The mantra Om is written in decorative Sanskrit letters. The contrast of the burgundy design against the saffron yellow cloth highlights the sacred mantra. This prayer shawl weighs just over 8 oz and measures 89" x 42". Dry clean recommended to protect printing. Otherwise hand wash and line dry.
Due to the hand-printing, some imperfections may be visible.
