Sandalwood’s sacred energy is believed to enhance your meditation and increase the power of insight, contemplation and serenity.
This mala has been dipped in the blessed waters of the holy Ganges River and carries with it great transformative and healing potential.
Grown in Asia and East India, Sandalwood was originally used at funeral ceremonies; burnt so the scent could carry the soul into the next life. The aroma — which retains its fragrance for decades — comes from the wood itself rather than the leaves or flowers. The warm soothing scent of sandalwood helps the mind to unwind and helps open the heart to love.
In ancient Buddhist tradition, Sandalwood has been celebrated as the perfect meditation tool for thousands of years. It is widely believed that the sandalwood scent can stimulate sensuality, grant a sense of awareness, invoke tranquility, awaken the divine thoughts within and promote profound relaxation. In the Ayurvedic healing tradition, it is known to promote energy and enthusiasm; increasing a person's self-esteem and zest for life.
You can use the healing aroma of sandalwood to promote feelings of peace and serenity and also to ease various ailments of the digestive system. Breathing in the aromatic scent from your sandalwood mala can help to lift melancholy and promote restful sleep. It subdues aggression and stress, promotes compassion and openness, and enhances meditation.
