Strung on durable elastic cord with 21 sandalwood beads and 1 feature bead. Sandalwood malas, which feel comfortably warm and fragrant in the hand during mantra recitation, are most commonly used among the monks and nuns as they are relatively light and hard-wearing for many hours spent in meditation.
Made here at Gomde. If you would like the size adjusted, we can add or remove beads to suit. Please specify your request in the order notes.
In the buddhist tradition, strings of beads (in multiples of 18, 21 or 27) are often used for the practice of mantra recitation to help to focus the mind, cultivate calmness, and to gain wisdom and purification.
