Dark Bodhi Seed Mala

47 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 13-14mm.

Exceptional Quality

I’m completely smitten with this dark bodhi seed mala. The seeds are wonderfully varied and textured, with a very pleasing and calming scent. The string is strong so that there is no concern regarding it breaking. The feeling is one of solidity and presence. I got this mala to serve as my main practice mala as I embark on a Ngöndro retreat. It has made my practice all the more enjoyable. I can’t recommend it highly enough! And as always, DharmaShop was a pleasure to do business with. :)

The feel...

This mala is not only beautiful but the texture, the shape of each seed is a remarkable gift to the touch. Much gratitude for this piece on the path of practice.

One of the more expensive items, but definitely worth it if you want both quality, and function. The larger beads make it easier to keep track while meditating/chanting, and the significance of the bodhi seeds fills you with a sense of meaning and purpose. Don't hesitate to invest in yourself by picking one of these up.
