Mala prayer beads are used during meditation and prayer as a way to count mantras and prayers.

The Antique Bodhi Seed Mala is a substantial, long mala necklace made of genuine bodhi seeds. Each of the 108 natural seed beads features a rich brown color, flecked with imperfections, cracks, and texture marks.

Buddha and the Bodhi Tree

As the legend goes, Buddha sat under the bodhi tree for 49 days of nonstop meditation, forgoing even sleep, food, and water. On the 49th day, that is when Buddha attained enlightenment.

For this reason, the bodhi tree, and all of its consequent parts (seeds, leaves, etc.) are associated with the concept of attaining wisdom and reaching enlightenment. To meditate with bodhi seeds in hand is to deepen your concentration and guide your mind to follow in the path of the enlightened one.


Materials: 108 genuine bodhi seed beads and 4 accent beads on brown string.

Size: Approximately 20" in length with adjustable knot. Beads are 12mm each. Guru bead is 14mm.

Please note: Seed malas, like lotus seed and bodhi seed, can expand and crack when they get wet. We recommend that you remove your mala before showering, swimming, exercising, or similar activities.


Handmade in Nepal.
