Dark Bodhi Seed Wrist Mala

5 reviews   |  


  • Authentic, traditional wrist mala hand strung with dark bodhi seed beads
  • The larger size of these beads can be very satisfying for counting.
  • Simply strung and finished with a guru bead and knotted ends.  Handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal.

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.

Wrist mala is available in two sizes with an adjustable knot.  Small measures approximately 6 inches around when fully tightened and opens to about 8 inches.  Large measures about 8 inches around when fully tightened and opens to about 10 inches.  Beads are about 13mm, guru bead is about 15mm.

Bodhi seeds, just what I was looking for.

The bracket is just what I was looking for. It has stretched a bit from lots of use. But, the craftsmanship is wonderful and all the knots are holding. Thank you

Dark Bodhi Seed Mala

I love my Dark Bodhi Seed Wrist Mala - I fully recommend it to anyone wanting to practice on the go - walking, going to work or meetings - or just strolling in the park - it doesn’t replace your full Mala, but it is a wonderful additional

I’m very satisfied with this purchase. The feeling of the bodhi seeds in my skin is unique. I love to touch them during the day. It helps me relaxe and focus.

5 stars for beauty - 3 stars for fit - 4 stars overall... (size large seems a bit small)

I regularly buy from The Dharma Shop. I love this mala. It is well crafted and a beautiful color. I do have to say that I am not a large person, but getting this mala over my hand and onto my wrist is a struggle. I fear I may snap the string one day. Because it is a fixed unadjustable bracelet there's really not much I can do concerning the small circumference. 5 stars for beauty - 3 stars for fit - 4 stars overall. This was a very thoughtful gift from my son, so I will cherish it none the less. Peace.

Hello Gregory, thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback! The Bodhi Seed Wrist Mala purchased does include an adjustable knot, so I want to be sure that is being utilized to ensure this is not a good fit for your wrist. The hand-tied knot serves as a tube through which the two cords slide. Without untying or loosening the knot, grasp the beads of the bracelet on either side of the knot and firmly pull. The first few times may require greater strength as the cords are exercised. To tighten, grasp the toggle beads and pull. I have also included a video below which helps further detail the adjustable knot feature. https://www.dharmashop.com/blogs/news/how-to-adjust-your-handmade-adjustable-wrist-mala Once this adjustable feature is utilized I do think this will be a much better fit for your wrist size! I hope this information is helpful. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback and supporting our small shop.
