This past year we found an unopened box from Kathmandu that was almost 20 years old. In it we found a handful of spectacular 11mm bodhi seed malas. You can look everywhere you want in Kathmandu right now and not find beads of this size and quality for this price.
We restrung and oiled the beads right here at the DharmaShop, adding a brass dorje and two Tibetan skulls to finish this incredible find.
Mala features 108 beads from the 1990s that are strung on durable black cord.
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.
