Tiger Dzi Bodhi Bracelet

3 reviews   |  
  • Last year we found an unopened box from Kathmandu that was almost 20 years old.  In it was a handful of spectacular 10-12mm bodhi seed malas.  DharmaShop founder, Sander Cohen, oiled and restrung the bodhi beads around a true agate modern Dzi bead centerpiece with a Tiger Tooth motif.  Two small Thai vermeil spacers surround the Dzi.
  • Sander was able to bring the last Tiger Tooth Dzi beads from his personal collection into the office for our jewelry specialist to hand string with our bodhi seed beads from Nepal.  These will go fast!
  • You guys loved the design so much that once we ran out, we had our friend and mala maker in Kathmandu, Dipendra, search high and low for bodhi beads of the same quality, size, and age.  After a few weeks of searching, he was able to source some equally incredible bodhi beads and create this mala for us once again!

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.

Tiger Teeth Dzi can assist the owner with concentration, determination, and completion.  It is also revered as a spiritual object, capable of keeping away evil things and bodily protection.  This Dzi is known to bring courage, success, and protection.  "Tiger Teeth" describes the design and style of Dzi bead, they are not made from tiger teeth.

Bracelet measures approximately 7.25 inches around on stretchy cord.  Bodhi beads are 10-12mm.  Dzi measures about 1.25 inch long.

Great design

For me as a Chinese customer, except for daily using of Bodhi beads, we have the tradition to polish the Bodhi seeds by hand. It's a time-consuming process and requires qualitative Bodhi seeds. It's quite complicated, but with this Bodhi Bracelet, I am very satisfied, since it's a gift from my girlfriend and I am enjoying wearing it everyday.

I Love it!

Most of the women's wrist malas are too small for me ok ok. This one is perfect and helps me stay present while wearing.

I am a regular customer who has been very pleased with my purchases and customer service experience over the years. This bracelet has an extraordinary presence and simple elegance! The Bodhi seed beads are the largest I have ever seen and pair well with the large dzi bead. Very comfortable to wear, though a little large for my average size wrist. I love the symbolism of both. Highly recommend.
