Sandalwood is a wood that is traditionally used for malas. It helps to realign mind, body and spirit. It also assists grounding and to be in the present. It assists in finding spiritual purpose, clarifying the mind and helps through periods of fear. In India, sandalwood is given divine status and the fragrance of the sandalwood is said to be one of the most pleasing to the Gods and is considered calming and soothing. Sandalwood promotes humility and focuses the mind to aid in meditation.
BODHI (बोधि) SEED
Seeds hold a lot of energy, to say the least, and they are alive - thus also a symbol for the latent life force we all hold within awaiting to pour through. They symbolize the pure potential, and the ever-present latent life force, held within each being. Seeds symbolize the potential for rebirth, in each and every situation, in each and every breath. They hold potential, as do we. This is the reason we use Seeds on our malas, as a reminder to consciously stay open and receptive, to channel the Life that is constantly moving through. The Seeds aim to remind you of their innate potential and magical life force.
Bodhi is translated as ‘understanding of the true nature of things’, ‘enlightenment’ and ‘awakening’. Gautama Buddha sat under a Bodhi Tree, in Bodhgaya, when he dissolved into this higher awareness. Now the Mahabodhi Temple is built around this very tree.
Bone symbolizes strength and supporting the flow of prana (life current) through your chakras, keeping them healthy and moving the energy smoothly through your energy centers. In addition, when paired with other gemstones, the bone improves the movement of the vital life force through the energy center related to the gemstone. In short, bone is used for increased flow of prana, bringing vitality and strength.
The feather is used as a symbol of the wings that we all carry. So often do we find ourselves feeling 'stuck' and the feather holds the intention of bringing us back to the realization that we are all inherently free - and to use our wings! The bone feathers further improves the flow of prana, life force, and increases vitality. The White feather - is used as a reminder of the energy of the Swan, who carries the message to surrender into the grace of the rhythm of the universe, to be at one with all plans of consciousness and to trust Great Spirit's protection. It helps us develop our intuitive abilities, and trusting our innate knowing. It tells us to relax and release resistance, to flow with ease and grace through life. It helps us accept whatever the future holds as it is presented, without trying to change Great Spirit's plan.
