About this Mala:
108 8 x 14mm, new, slightly-shaped, tea-stained, rare, polished, antique style Bodhi seeds, with Turquoise, Carnelian, and Bone markers, finished with a Snakeknot and beaded adornments. We use the strongest beadcraft materials available, so this mala works well for heavy use like “prostrations.”
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.
Turquoise: Known as a master healer stone, with the ability to repair physical injury, mental strife and even past life trauma. Turquoise promotes communication and resolution of petty arguments and hostilities. Wear Turquoise to gain wisdom. Turquoise protects the wearer from harm by absorbing negative influences.
Carnelian: Helps balance creativity and mental processes, and increase passion and compassion. In the Feng Shui tradition, orange is associated with creativity, abundance, organization and is “Yang.” This stone is associated with the second chakra and folklored to evoke fertility and inspire passion.
Bone is used in Tantric Buddhism to remind us of our impermanence, and by doing so, we are inspired to make each moment meaningful.
