Antique Boudhanath Bodhi Mala

1 review   |  
  • This true antique bodhi seed mala was purchased directly by the DharmaShop team in Kathmandu.  Antique bodhi beads of this quality are highly sought after.
  • Made of 108 small, well used and very dark bodhi beads.  Each bead is rich in detail with a beautiful sheen as well as its own shape and texture.  The mala has been restrung in recent years on red cord with a yellow knot.
  • These 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.

    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 39.5 inches around.  Beads are about 10mm.  Guru bead is about 17mm.  Comes with a DharmaShop keepsake bag!

    Antique Bodhi Seed Mala

    I’ve had a great experience with Dharma Shop. Shipping was quick and the mala was carefully packaged. The mala is very special, looks exactly as photographed and feels very pleasing to the touch. I am gratified to be holding a piece of that wonderful country in my hands. This is not my first experience with DS and will not be my last!
