Traditional Indian Tulsi Mala (Kanthi)

Hand made Tulsi-Mala beads from Northern India that I brought home with me from my travels. This is a long-form mala carved from pure Tulsi plants in Nothern India.

Tulsi Mala is made from Tulsi plants aka: Holy Basil. This is also known as a Kanthi and originates from the Vaishnava lineage of Hinduism, and therefore wearing a Tulsi Mala/Kanthi is said to provide us with Krishna's protection in daily life, and so is worn virtually 24.7.
