- 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!
