One of our most popular items, this wrist mala is made of red sandalwood beads and semi-precious gemstones strung on elastic. It is a beautiful and functional jewelry piece, convenient for japa mantra chanting when on the go.
Red sandalwood, commonly known as rosewood, is a much-prized component of ritual malas, and it is specifically said to aid in relaxation and the reduction of excessive thoughts and nervous energy. Malas are symbols of the never-ending cycle of eternity and are beloved of many deities.
Sandalwood is especially sacred to Shiva and to Ganesha, the Lord of Success and the remover of obstacles.
Please note: Gemstones (colored beads) may slightly vary than shown here depending on availability.
