It is widely believed that the sandalwood scent can stimulate sensuality, grant a sense of awareness, invoke tranquillity, awaken the divine thoughts within and promote profound relaxation. Burning sandalwood incense can benefit healing work by promoting a deeper relaxed state in the healer, increasing spiritual energy.
sandalwood is given divine status and is thus very commonly used in mala beads. The fragrance of the sandalwood is said to be one of the most pleasing to the Gods and is considered cooling, calming and soothing. Sandalwood also promotes humility and focuses the mind to aid in meditation.
Using Malas & Prayer Beads
This beautifully handcrafted mala is traditionally used for Japa meditation (counting repetitions of prayers of Sanskrit mantras) but can also be worn as spiritual jewellery to receive the energetic effects of the stones. Wearing and using your mala beads also serves as a reminder to act in accordance with your intentions and spiritual values.
