One of our most beautiful and popular malas! Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting many types of mantras, as well as other prayers, prostrations, circumambulations, and so forth. This mala has 108 bodhi beads plus 3 amber-resin spacers. We find the large size of these beads very satisfying for counting many mantras. Can be worn around the left wrist when not in use. Simply strung on a durable, cord and finished with a guru bead and red tassel. Handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal. Dress this mala up with a set of our mala counters or mala jewels!
Bodhi seeds have sacred meaning throughout Buddhism. It was under the Bodhi tree that the Buddha first achieved enlightenment.
Size: 11 by 9 mm beads, 40 inch total circumference.
