This is my first ever Bodhi seed mala. It's a complement to my sandalwood mala that I also got from Dharma Shop. I'm wearing it right now and it is beautiful and filled with blessings. A little story: I asked my girlfriend whether to get the Mahakala mala or the Compassion mala, and I told her a bit of the description of each, and she said that I needed a lot more help with protection from negative thoughts than I needed help generating compassion. I took that as a huge compliment since kindness and compassion are the highest of virtues in my opinion, so to have the closest person in the world to me tell me that I'm very kind and compassionate already really touched my heart. But I definitely could use protection from negative thoughts. I guess most of us could! Anyway, there's only four in the world and I just got one of them, so hurry if you think you might want one!
