The bodhi seed has a special significance as it signifies the Buddha's attainment of enlightenment while seated under the Bodhi Tree. While especially revered by Buddhists, a bodhi seed mala is considered auspicious to use for all practices, and represents spiritual intention, mindfulness and faith.
This is a traditional mala bracelet made from natural bodhi seeds. The bodhi seeds are exquisite - almost round (avg 11mm diameter) with excellent eye formation (Phoenix Eye) on every bead. The seeds are light colored due to recent cultivation and will naturally darken over time. An excellent bracelet for yoga, mantras and meditation. Ideal for men or women.
