It is a beautiful Bodhi Mala, feels great!! Love it!
Wonderful mala, very special, one of my favorites of collection. Recommended
The rounded bodhi seeds feel amazing, and the large bodhi seeds are wonderful for my fingers. Affordable too.
Beautiful and functional. Bodhi-malas are unfortunately way over-priced compared to those handcrafted from other plain materials of wood or seed, much due to high demand in China. But I did think it was worth it, not least because of the unique style of this product and the symbolical value of bodhi seed. But the price is also acceptable as an act of support for the surviving practitioners of the traditional arts and crafts, so many branches of which regrettably have been driven to extinction by the all-devouring monster of a globalized modern industrial system. Homage to the Lord Buddha, the conqueror, teacher of gods and men.
I did not have a Mala nor did I feel I needed one and then I saw this one and knew it was to be mine. When I unwrapped it, it seemed to come alive. After cleansing with sage and gently running the seeds through my hands it became mine to not only focus purpose but it reminds me who I am. Sound crazy? Try it. Thank you Dharma Shop!
