About Bodhi Seeds:
Bodhi is the Sanskrit word for “awakened.” Bodhi Seed is the traditional Tibetan Buddhist Mala, with beads that become more beautiful with age and use. Perfect for prostration (bowing) practice. Bodhi Seeds absorb the oils from your skin and from the environment to become a shining dark, almost petrified bead.
Lapis Lazuli: Provides relief for headaches, sore throats, and varicose veins. It is also known to help with alleviating cramps, stiffness, and fertility problems. For people around the world, Lapis Lazuli is considered a stone of truth and friendship. The blue stone is reputed to promote harmony in relationships.
Jade: Considered the most precious of all stones in ancient Egypt and even now in Japan and the Orient. It is credited with five qualities: clarity, courage, justice, wisdom, and modesty. It is folklored to evoke tranquility, so much so that even holding Jade in your hand may cause a feeling of serenity or wisdom. Consequently, it also said to help to the smooth transition to the next world and aids in peaceful death and dream yoga. Jade provides protection from from enemies and during long journeys.
