Antique Bodhi Compassion Mala

  |  
  • A true antique bodhi seed mala purchased directly by the DharmaShop team in Kathmandu.  These 10mm beads are truly stunning!
  • Made of 108 small, well used dark bodhi beads.  Each bead is rich in color with a beautiful sheen as well as its own shape and texture.  Mala has been restrung in recent years on bold red cord in with a dark brown tube knot for adjustability.
  • 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.

    On their trip to Nepal in October 2019, DharmaShop owners, Christy and Sander Cohen met a Tibetan gentleman on the steps of the monastery just outside of the Boudhanath Stupa.  He had a small collection of gorgeous antiques from which Sander and Christy were able to purchase a handful of high quality bodhi malas.  We were able to find the same seller and source a handful of truly incredible antique bodhi seed malas from him once again!

    Mala measures approximately 38 inches around.  Beads are about 10mm.  Guru bead is about 17mm.  Comes with a DharmaShop keepsake bag!
