On their trip to Nepal in October 2019, DharmaShop owners, Christy and Sander Cohen were walking a kora around the Boudhanath stupa when they saw an individual seller with a variety of bodhi seed malas. As they began talking with the seller, monks from the nearby monastery came by and they discussed the beautiful quality of the beads. We were able to find the same seller and source a handful of truly incredible antique bodhi seed malas from him once again! We cannot emphasize enough how extraordinary these beads are. A rare and amazing find!
Mala measures approximately 36 inches around. Beads are about 8-10mm with most being around 9mm. Guru bead is about 17mm. Comes with a traditional silk and polyester keepsake bag!
