This rosewood prayer mala (rosary) is beautifully hand knotted on a holy red string. There is a knot between each bead. Each bead is used to count the repetition of a mantra or chant. The number 108 bears spiritual significance across several cultures.
Rosewood is used to call upon Lord Ganesh "the remover of obstacles" and the Divine Mother. Rosewood is warming, improves circulation and protects one from negative energy.
Length of the mala is about 33" and the bead size is about 8mm. As these malas are hand knotted there will be little difference in the length on each mala.
Beads are from Nepal. Carefully hand strung in the USA by Dharma Gifts.
