- This one-of-a-kind antique bodhi mala comes from DharmaShop founder, Sander Cohen's personal collection. He purchased it just outside of the Boudhanath Stupa on a visit to Nepal a few years ago.
- Made of 108 small, well used dark bodhi beads that are truly stunning. Each bead is unique, rich in color with a beautiful sheen. Beads of this size and quality are becoming harder to find even in Kathmandu recently.
- Simply strung on red cord and finished with a bodhi guru bead.
Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras, as well as other prayers, prostrations, and so forth. 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.
Mala measures approximately 43 inches around. Bodhi beads are about 10-12mm, guru bead is 14mm.
