In Buddhism, it is believed that these yellow cords offer protection and bring luck. They are often tied during ceremonies or given to practitioners by monks, gurus, or nuns to represent lessons learned. The traditional yellow color is also associated with wisdom and joy. It can also symbolize an empty mind, free from attachments to material things.
"Bodhi" in Sanskrit means enlightenment; as an "enlightened" seed, many practitioners use these malas for their essence and inherent teachings within each seed. These dark-speckled seed beads have special meaning for all seekers of divine wisdom.
