temple rakhi for sitar and indian instruments

 

Rakhi bracelet for sitar ~ Some players like to hang these on the second string peg, around the arah (nut), etc. These have small tassles but ok for a subtle presence. Very limited supply, will have more next August hopefully.

Picture is example only, I have many varieties mostly jewelled type and now a little fancier generally. If you're looking for something simple look below.

Organic cotton and Kusa grass mat ~ One of the greatest things I've found on my trips. It's a padded mat, the inside is a woven Kusa grass mat surrounded by organic cotton. The it's wrapped in another layer of organic cotton. Kusa/Dharba grass is said to aid in meditations, etc. as per the Vedas. All with zippers, etc. so it's washable. 36" X 22" in length, it's 3 1/2 lbs in weight. I use one myself every day.
