- DharmaShop founder, Sander Cohen, helped design this 108 bead bodhi seed mala alongside our artisans in Kathmandu.
- It's made with 108 high quality bodhi seed beads that have been cut on each end, making them flat in the traditional manner. Finished with a stunning true agate Dzi bead and a brass dorje charm.
- Sander actually sourced these incredible nectar bottle Dzi beads on a trip to Taiwan and brought them directly to our mala makers in Nepal, creating a truly exclusive DharmaShop design!
The nectar bottle Dzi motif is the focus of all goodwill and gathering of auspiciousness and general fortune. This bead can assist the owner in achieving the good things of life.
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.
Mala measures approximately 35 inches around. Beads are about 12-14mm. Dzi bead measures just under 0.75 inch long. Made in Nepal.
