- This past year we found an unopened box from Kathmandu that was almost 20 years old. In it was a handful of spectacular 10-12mm 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.
- DharmaShop founder, Sander Cohen, oiled and restrung the bodhi beads around a true agate modern Dzi bead centerpiece with a Tiger Tooth motif. Two small Thai vermeil spacers surround the Dzi.
- Sander actually sourced these incredible Tiger Tooth Dzi beads on a trip to Taiwan and after stringing them with these incredible bodhi beads from Nepal, has created a truly exclusive DharmaShop design!
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.
Tiger Teeth Dzi can assist the owner with concentration, determination, and completion. It is also revered as a spiritual object, capable of keeping away evil things and bodily protection. "Tiger Teeth" describes the design and style of dzi bead, they are not made from tiger teeth.
