This mala comes from our DharmaShop curated collection. It was hand selected from an antique bodhi seed seller just outside of the Boudhanath temple. The bodhi seeds originate from the Kavrepalanchok District, one of the only places in Nepal so far to produce bodhi seeds! This seller and her family have been involved in the bodhi seed trade for generations. Kavrepalanchok is also the hometown of the head of our DharmaShop Nepal team!
Mala measures approximately 37 inches around. Beads are 10mm with some 8-9mm! Guru bead is about 16-17mm. Comes with a DharmaShop keepsake bag!
