Bodhi and Lava Rock Impermanence Mala

2   |  

This is a traditional bodhi mala with a stylish design.  It includes 108 bodhi seed and lava rock beads with brass spacers strung on heavy cotton cord, and finishes with a beautiful brass skull pendant with filagree detail.  The larger size of these bodhi seed beads can be very satisfying for counting.

The skull in Buddhism is often recognized as a symbol of impermanence.  This mala is an amazing way to reflect on impermanence in your daily practice.  It is a powerful reminder to be here now and to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.

Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras as well as other prayers.  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.

Lava rock is known for its grounding properties and is wonderful for calming the emotions.  It is created from the center of the Earth and therefore is fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the root chakra.

***Due to the natural element of the bodhi seed beads, size of mala may vary.  Please let us choose.***

Malas sizes vary from approximately 40-50 inches in circumference.  Bodhi seed beads are approximately 12-15mm.  Lava rock beads are 10mm.  Brass skull pendant measures about 1 5/8 inch tall from bail, 3/4 inch wide, and 7/8 inch thick.

JJ, thank you for your feedback! We're so happy to hear that you love your Bodhi Seed and Lava Rock mala. Lava Rock is cool because it is almost like a travel diffuser. You can put a few drops of essential oil on the rocks for a lasting scent. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review and know you'll get a lot of great wear out of this mala. Thank you for supporting The DharmaShop!

Bodhi and Lava Rock Impermanence Mala

This mala has beautiful energy and is one of my favorites for mantra accumulations (i have quite a few malas). This mala is also simple and lovely aesthetically. The large skull has amazing detail. i love the way it feels in my hands and the fragrance of the bodhi beads makes my meditations focused and deep. Thank you!!!
