This authentic, traditional wrist mala is handmade in Nepal, from bodhi seed beads with turquoise and coral coloured spacer beads.
There are significant properties of each of the materials used to make the mala. These dark-speckled Bodhi seed beads have special meaning for all seekers of divine wisdom. “Bodhi” in Sanskrit means enlightenment or awakened; as an “enlightened” seed, many practitioners use these malas as a reminder of the essence of Buddha’s understanding of the true nature of things.
Threaded with either yellow or red string, an adjustable slip knot allows for ease of use.
The mala is often used so that one can focus on the meaning or sound of a mantra rather than counting its repetitions. One repetition is usually said for each bead while turning the thumb clockwise around each bead.
Each bead is approximately 14mm wide, making this the perfect wrist mala to fit a larger wrist.
