- 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 Tiger Tooth Dzi beads on a trip to Taiwan and brought them directly to our mala makers in Nepal, creating a truly exclusive DharmaShop design! We have only 6 of these malas available, so grab one while you can!
Tiger teeth Dzi can assist the owner with concentration, determination, and completion. It is also revered as a spiritual object, capable of keeping away evil things and bodily protection.
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 1.25 inches long. Made in Nepal.
