Bodhi Seeds and Buddhism

Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras, as well as other prayers, prostrations, circumambulations, and so forth. Bodhi seeds have sacred meaning throughout Buddhism. It was under the Bodhi tree that the Buddha first achieved enlightenment. "Bodhi" in Sanskrit means enlightenment; as an "enlightened" seed, many practitioners use malas for their essence and inherent teachings within each seed.
