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.
The naga/conch shell represents the fame of the Buddha's teaching which spreads in all directions like the sound of the conch trumpet. It is a symbol which fearlessly proclaims the truth of the dharma.
Adjustable wrist mala measures approximately 7.5 inches around when fully tightened and opens to about 10.5 inches. Bodhi beads are 11-13mm, naga shell bead is about 17mm.
