- A few weeks ago we found a disassembled antique bodhi seed mala in our bead room and we just could not believe the incredible quality and size of the beads!
- Our jewelry specialist selected a stunning true agate three-eyed Dzi bead centerpiece to accompany the bodhi beads and strung this limited edition bracelet on stretchy cord. Only 3 available!
- These bodhi seeds are very small and dark, around 10mm, with a beautiful sheen. Some even feature the visible phoenix eye pattern.
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.
DharmaShop founder, Sander Cohen, collected these stunning three-eye Dzi beads from a Tibetan collector in Taiwan. The three-eye Dzi is a popular design that is said to promote wealth, good health, success, compassion and glory. The three eyes represent the three stars of luck: happiness, honor and longevity.
Bracelet measures approximately 7.25 inches around on stretchy cord. Beads are 10-11mm. Dzi bead is about 1 inch long.
