Dark Bodhi Seed Mala

29 reviews   |  
  • One of our best-selling products!  This authentic, traditional mala has 108 bodhi seed beads strung on heavy cotton cord.
  • The larger size of these beads can be very satisfying for counting.  When not in use, it can be wrapped 3-5 times loosely around most wrists.
  • Simply strung and finished with a guru bead and black tassel.  Handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras as well as other prayers.  These dark-speckled seed beads have special meaning for all seekers of divine wisdom.  "Bodhi" in Sanskrit means enlightenment; as an "enlightened" seed, many practitioners use these malas for their essence and inherent teachings within each seed.

Mala measures about 42 inches around.  Beads are approximately 14mm.

Dark Bodhi Seed Mala

I get so many compliments on these mala beads. They really calm me down and remind me to breathe while counting the large beads. LOVE!

Wonderful! Large beads and wonderful texture.

At first I thought it was going to be far too big in terms of size. Within two days, I was so pleased that it wasn't smaller. The adjustable sliding clasp allows you to increase/decrease overall length of string. I wrap it 5 times around my relatively small wrist (male) and can make it snug or hang loosely. I also wore it hanging around my neck when not at work. YOU WILL LOVE THIS!

Wonderful Mala for Intensive Recitation Practice

The customer service at Dharmashop is top notch and this mala is of the highest quality. The beads are shaped so that they slide through my fingers really effortlessly. There’s just enough slack on the chord to make counting easy, but not too much so that the beads feel sloppy in my hand. Yes, it is very beautiful—but above all this mala is a thoughtfully made Dharma tool. These large hands really appreciate it!
