SANDLEWOOD

Sandalwood is given a divine status. The fragrance is most pleasing. Considered cooling, calming and soothing. Sandalwood promotes humility and focuses the mind to aid in meditation.

ROSEWOOD

Rosewood is used to call upon Ganesha, the Hindu deity who is "the remover of obstacles" and the Divine Mother. Rosewood is warming, improves circulation and protects from negative energy.

BOW AND ARROW

The bow and arrow refer to the single pointed concentration to achieve a goal of liberation. With the Hindu deity Durga the bow and arrow represents energy. By holding both in one hand it indicates her control over both aspects of energy- potential and kinetic.

THE BINDI

The bindi drop is a unique and natural shape which represents the individual self and one's connection with the universe. Just as a drop of water is still that drop of water when absorbed by the vast ocean, so is the individual a part of the vast universe while remaining that individual.

How are we all different yet part of the same humanity? How can we overcome what is right in front of us and see the bigger picture? How can we cause ripples in the stream of life and effect others for the good?

"A drop of water taken out of the ocean has everything in it that the ocean does, but now is independent. When the drop is returned into the ocean it becomes the ocean."

THE MALAS

Mala means garland in Sanskrit ( an ancient language of India), it is a string of beads used for prayer when reciting mantras (sound, syllable, word or phrase that is considered capable of spiritual transformation), like a rosary. It has 108 beads, one for each of the earthly desires to be transcended. Nine is the sacred number and common denominator in mala prayer beads. They can come with 54 beads and also 27 beads which are counted four times.

NUMBERS

Numbers can have symbolic meanings. Viewed symbolically, numbers represent more than quantities, they can also have qualities.

Number One represents beginnings, creation, primal being, the self, and the oneness to which all living things must return.

Number Three is sacred in most religions. Hindu’s worship a trinity known as the Trimurti (three forms) Brahmin-the creator, Vishnu- the preserver and Shiva- the destroyer. Between them they create, sustain and destroy life in an endless cycle of birth and re birth. Christians believe in a Holy Trinity. Number three expresses all aspects of creation, including birth, life and death, past, present and future, and mind body and soul.

Number Nine is a sacred number; three multiplies by itself to give eternity, completion and fulfillment. Nine is also the only number which multiply by any number always reproduce itself (9×2=18, 1+8=9…)
