Kamandalu (Sanskrit) or Kamandal or Kamandalam is an oblong water pot made of a dry gourd (pumpkin) or coconut shell, metal, wood of the Kamandalataru tree or from clay, usually with a handle and sometimes with a spout.

As per the vedantic philosophy, the universe is made up of matter, matter is made up of energy and energy is made up of vibrations. Water acts as a great medium that is capable of absorbing vibrations of all kind. When a yogi sits in meditation, his viberations rise to a higher spiritual level and same is absorbed by the water in the kamandal which gets charged with good positive vibes. This water can then be used for spiritual healing.
