Sandalwood is the name of the aromatic wood that comes from a sacred tree in southern India. These round sandalwood beads have a gentle feel and are hand carved from the outer layer of a sacred tree. 

The mala is a sacred string of prayer beads blessed with mantras that spiritual aspirants use in a practice called “japa.” Each mala has the auspicious number of 108 beads plus the untouched sumeru bead, which is made from natural materials capable of carrying energetic vibrations. Traditionally, the spiritual master blesses the mala with mantras and transfers divine energy to a disciple upon giving it.

How to use: Sit cross-legged in a meditative place and starting with the bead next to the sumeru (the largest bead often with a tassel), holding it with your right thumb and middle finger. Do not touch the sumeru, the 109th bead. Gently roll the bead back and forth while saying the provided mantra, drawing your attention to the feel of the bead and the sound of the mantra. Do this on each of the 108 beads to complete a round. Do as many rounds as are desired or instructed.
