- Handmade in Kathmandu, this mala features 108 powerful and natural Indian bodhi seeds.
- We love the earthy and unique characteristics of these beads! Their appearance reminds us of a classic bodhi seed mixed with sandalwood.
- As your mala is regularly handled and touched, the oils in your skin can begin to darken and smooth the beads. You become a part of the mala. We consider this special process to be a visual representation of the growth in your practice.
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.
Mala measures approximately 38 inches around with an adjustable knot. Beads are about 10mm with a 16mm guru bead.
