One of our favorite 108 bead malas features high quality polished lotus seed beads with carnelian spacers and an Endless/Eternal Knot tassel on stretchy cord. It is ideal for everyday use and can be worn around the neck or wrapped 3-5 times around the wrist. Handmade in Kathmandu.
The pure, delicate lotus flower arises from bogs and slowly develops a beautiful seed head. The dried seeds are then smoothed and sealed to make a lasting prayer bead mala. Lotus seed symbolizes spiritual growth and the ability to overcome obstacles on the path to enlightenment. It also can promote spiritual and material prosperity.
To add to the elegance and significance of the lotus blossom seeds is the beautifully tied Eternal Knot tassel. This Auspicious Symbol represents the interconnectedness of all beings, the interweaving of one's spiritual path, and endless harmony.
Mala measures approximately 34 inches around on stretchy cord. Lotus seed beads are 8-9mm, Carnelian spacers are 6mm. Made in Nepal.
