Authenticity & Style

Sacred Woods has been importing devotional goods, specializing in genuine semi-precious gemstone and wood malas, for an auspicious 27 years! Our wholesale and retail customers have long recognized the craftsmanship and traditional style of our malas, jewelry and cloth items. Company founder Shyamdas (1953-2013) personally developed our supplier relationships and products. His devotion shines through these powerful handcrafted items, sourced directly from local artisans in the sacred regions of Vrindavan and Rajasthan, India.

To serve you better, we have partnered with our dear bhakti friends and fellow India lovers, Keli and Saci. Your retail and wholesale orders of the Sacred Woods items you have come to recognize and love are now carefully processed by their family-owned distributing company Merchnow, based in Albany, NY.

About the new owner

My name is Vallabhdas. I was fortunate to know Sacred Woods founder Shyamdas very well and worked closely with him for over 10 years refining Sacred Woods' online presence and products. Like Shyamdas, I live half the year in India and half in the U.S. This keeps me in close touch with our existing and new suppliers and customers on both sides of the ocean. I am honored to continue providing high quality devotional goods to our honored Sacred Woods clientele.

Beautiful beads, well strung on non-stretchy elastic cord. I use them for bedtime meditation and usually end up sleeping with them. Very durable! Came well packaged in tissue paper with cotton padding in cardboard gift box. Very pleased with the quality and price.
