Quintis have dedicated 20 years to the sustainable cultivation of this noble species, grown in plantations amongst Australia’s pristine tropical north. Sandalwood has calming and soothing properties, that help promote the ability to focus the mind for meditation. Using Sandalwood beads calms the mind and leaves a lingering pleasant aroma on the hand after meditation.
How to Use Sandalwood Beads for Meditation
1. Choose a spot and sit comfortably with your spine straight and your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths to centre and align yourself with your intention.
2. If you have one, use a mantra for this practice, chanting aloud or silently.
3. Hold your beads in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the guru bead (centre bead), use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra. Do this until you once again reach the guru bead.
4. If you want to continue the meditation, instead of passing over the guru bead, simply reverse direction and begin again.
