Hand-knotted rosewood hand mala
Rosewood is considered holy in India and helps you to connect with the energy of your heart. It symbolises kindness and the qualities of compassion and openheartedness.
A hand mala has 27 counting beads plus one meru bead. The meru (mountain) bead provides a starting and ending point for counting the repetitions of a mantra.
The word mala comes from the Sanskrit meaning garland. Malas are used as meditation beads or prayer beads and are used to keep the mind focused and clear from thoughts.
These hand-knotted malas are individually made, and colours may vary.
