- In 2019, we found an unopened box from Kathmandu in our warehouse that was over 20 years old. Inside, we found a handful of spectacular 11mm bodhi seed malas.
- We restrung and oiled the beads right here at the DharmaShop, adding a brass dorje and two Tibetan skulls to finish this incredible find.
- 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.
Mala measures approximately 39 inches around. Beads are about 11-12mm.
