Smell-Padipata / Intelligent production


The product uses taste to create an atmosphere of chanting, making the meditation more calm and closer to the gods.As the number of beading moves increases, the wireless charging base creates a different scent that adds a sense of sacredness to the meditation process.When picking up the beads for meditation, the base is switched from the charging state to the starting state. During the rotation of the beads, the base is scented by the shape of the central mountain.After every thousand turns, the taste changes on the basis of sandalwood, and the fragrance of pure heart and meditation function continued from ancient China.
