Siddha Chandana

Siddha Chandan
This chandan charged by Ganesha Mantra. Chandana or sandalwood paste is one of the sacred substances offered during puja and afterwards distributed to devotees as a sacrament (prasada). It is used as a "pottu" or "bindi," given prior to kumkum which is placed over the chandana. Because of the rarity of the tree, sandalwood powder is expensive and is commonly replaced with this synthetic chandana.We also use this Siddha Chandana to do Pujas and Sadhanas.
