Sattva Mani Mala
Wear to invoke a calm mind, for greater intuition & truth to arise.
Mala necklaces are made up of a set of beads, traditionally used to focus & center oneself during meditation. Each bead marks the repetition of a prayer. The center beads are referred to as the guru or teacher. A mani mala is meant to be worn for sacred adornment rather than for meditation.
This mala is one-of-a-kind, mantra infused & made of sandalwood, turquoise & silver beads strung on 100% silk thread. Pink tassels are made of hand-dyed, organic cotton.
