I love this Mala! The Bodhi seeds show beautiful age and use. I know this came from a full Mala, but even sharing in a piece of that is wonderful and meaningful. The history is apparent. I love to wear this as I meditate. It is a treasure that carries the energy of past lives, and spiritual practice. I am using it respectfully to meet that energy and hopefully add to it. They are also incredibly light and the size is great, not too big. I wanted one of these for a long time, and when they appeared recently I could not resist. Thank you Dharma Shop!
