Bodhiseed Beads Prayer Mala Nepal


Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras, as well as other prayers, prostrations, circumambulations, and so forth.  This basic, traditional, one-of-a-kind mala has 108 small bodhi seed beads strung on heavy cotton cord.  When not in use, it can be wrapped 3-5 times loosely around most wrists.  Simply strung and finished with a guru bead on red cord.  Handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal.

It was while meditating under a bodhi tree that Prince Siddhartha attained enlightenment and became the Buddha.  The dark-speckled seeds from this fig tree thus 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.

 Beads are about 14mm.
