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.
