- An authentic Tibetan wrist mala from Nepal with vintage-style bodhi seed beads and a gold-plated Snow Lion centerpiece.
- Designed to provide a more vintage and rustic look, each bead is unique with it's own shape and abundant texture.
- DharmaShop founder, Sander Cohen, sourced a limited quantity of these amazing gold-plated Snow Lions on a trip to Taiwan in 2019. He brought them directly to our mala makers in Nepal to create this DharmaShop exclusive and limited edition bracelet!
The Snow Lion is known to represent unconditional cheerfulness, a mind free of doubt, clarity, and precision. It is associated with fearlessness and also has a youthful, vibrant energy of goodness and a natural sense of delight. Snow lions are considered fierce protectors of Tibet.
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.
Adjustable wrist mala measures approximately 6.75 inches around when fully tightened and opens to about 9 inches. Beads are 13-14mm. Snow Lion bead is about 1.25 inch long and 0.5 inch wide.
