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.
Coral: Protects and strengthens one’s emotional foundation. It enables self-acceptance. Deep red in Tibetan Buddhism is associated with the Padma family which represents compassionate and passionate energy. Coral Malas are particularly auspicious for any red deity meditation practice such as Red Tara, Vajrayogini (Dorje Naljorma), or Dorje Pagmo. Note that coral is inherently porous, and should not be considered a defect.
All malas have a 30 day guarantee to protect from breakage. Complimentary Silk Mala Bag included!
