Small One-of-a-Kind Bodhi Seed Mala


Bodhi seed beads can be used for counting all types of mantras, as well as other prayers, prostrations, circumambulations, and so forth.  This basic, traditional, one-of-a-kind mala has 108 small bodhi seed beads strung on heavy cotton cord.  When not in use, it can be wrapped 3-5 times loosely around most wrists.  Simply strung and finished with a guru bead on red cord.  Handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal.

It was while meditating under a bodhi tree that Prince Siddhartha attained enlightenment and became the Buddha.  The dark-speckled seeds from this fig tree thus 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.

Measures approximately 40 inches around.  Beads are about 12mm.
