On a side note:
There is a Buddhist swastika made from jade below the knot. It is small and worth mentioning for people that may be ignorant of this symbol in Buddhism being used centuries before Germany used it.
Overall this is a very nice Mala, the quality and materials should have this last you for many years.
Thank you for reading my little review.
We do not refer to our malas as necklaces. It's also clear it is not Tibetan, but Chinese. The writing is probably Mandarin, but it is not Tibetan nor Sanskrit. The tassel that hangs down from the Guru Bead is a 'lucky' Chinese Knot - one you often see hung outside homes and is more associated with Taoism than Buddhism. There are good malas out there made by Tibetans in exile and Buddhist organizations and are very good prices. You get what you pay for. There's a short book written and available here on Amazon, as a Kindle Book, A Garland of Advice: Special Instructions on How to Bless a Mala and General Advice for Recitation Practice by Zurmang Gharwang Rinpoche. You do not want to accumulate any 'negative' karma by using malas wrong or the wrong malas. Sandalwood does make a good mala but this one is suspect. Certain seeds and precious metals and stone make good malas too. Malas of coral for example, are very good. Bodhi seed malas of course are very good as the Buddha attained complete enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree.
Do not be fooled by these. They are PLASTIC with cheap fragrance sprayed on them to make you think they are sandalwood.
As for quality, they seem top notch, just beautiful and identical to the picture, and beyond gorgeous. I can't believe the price given what I received. LOVE these beads.
