- Bodhi beads that have been cut on each end, making them flat in the traditional manner are contrasted with large naga shell beads to create this beautiful bracelet.
- The naga shell beads are inlaid with pieces of turquoise and coral.
- Hand strung in Nepal on stretchy cord.
Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras as well as other prayers. "Bodhi" in Sanskrit means enlightenment; as an "enlightened" seed, many practitioners use these malas for their essence and inherent teachings within each seed.
The naga/conch shell represents the fame of the Buddha's teaching which spreads in all directions like the sound of the conch trumpet. It is a symbol which fearlessly proclaims the truth of the dharma.
Pairs perfectly with our Bodhi and Naga Spirit Mala!
Bracelet measures approximately 6 1/2 inches around on stretchy cord. Bodhi beads are about 12-15mm, naga shell beads are 13-15mm. *Due to the nature of the cut bodhi seed beads, size may vary slightly.*
