Handmade sandalwood mala beads. They can be worn as a necklace or bracelet.
Buddhist mala beads are a centuries-old tool, designed to keep the mind focused on the practice of prayer and meditation. The symbol of the never ending cycle, each bead in the mala counts a Sanskrit prayer or mantra in sets of 108 repetitions.
Today used by many yogis, malas are used to recite mantras while practicing meditation. The number 108 is considered a sacred number in traditions such as Buddhism & Hinduism. However, many people wear mala beads today as a symbol and reminder of their own journey and each person have its own to travel.
