Item is a beautiful colour, is very well assembled and has quality metal accents. Not a cheap piece by any means. I have been using for 3 weeks now and my toddler has taken a keen interest and swiped it a few times. It has held up to rigorous testing. Has a great energy. Very calming piece.
I normally use a 5 mm mala. I was very attracted to the beauty of the bodhi seed mala, but thought it would be bulky. Still I got it. And now I love it. It’s great for mandala offering, I’m such a klutz at holding both the pan and mala, but the 11mm bodhi seeds make it a breeze. I can rip though 100 in no time! Overall it’s a very satisfying mala to use - the color of the wood, it’s smooth feel, and just knowing I’m connected to Shakyamuni makes using it very pleasant. Definitely supports my practice.
Great Mala, well made, high quality, quick shipping. Excellent experience.
Dharma shop has always excelled at offering quality products. This mala has brought me much peace and happiness in the few days I’ve had it. The seeds are gorgeously smooth and full of deep, gorgeous, dark caramel grain. I oiled them with coconut oil and Tulsi and they just SMILED back at me. The cord they’ve chosen to string these on feels durable and strong and the brass accents have a nice weight to them. At the risk of “overwriting” this review, I would like to say that I have been looking for this quality for quite some time and am very please with these beads. I prayed on my rudraksha mala for about 10 faithful years but felt that they had gotten a but tired and worn. So finding a mala to replace such a special set of beads means a lot. Also, the great thing about this company is it’s dedication to providing the BEST customer service. Gotta give it to them- they know what they’re all about. Namasté.
