In the song "Magdalena" by Brandon Flowers... one of the lines is "Prodigal sons and wayward daughters carry mandas that they might be delivered from the depths of darkness..." What is a manda? Or what does it mean, to "carry mandas"?
I looked up the song lyrics and it is mandas. According to the SD dictionary it can mean legacy left in a will. I don't know if that was the writer's intent. Maybe an offering of some kind.
a manda is like a promise you do, for a "favor" that you receive from a saint, for exemple you promise go on your knees to the church if one of your family get well from a disease.... that's a kind of manda
