Bodhiseed Mala

Availability:: Currently Unavailable
Product Code: REF:MALA66


Nepalese Bodhiseed 'eye' beads are amongst the rarest and most difficult to source. Each seed has the formation of a natural eye and we are told that they only grow in one region of Nepal. Unlike other Bodhiseed malas in the marketplace, these beads have not been shaped or dyed. Seeds that are completely natural and untreated are considered to be the very best for practice.

The smallest uniform seeds are the most sought after and command the highest prices. On average a fully developed seed will grow to around 12 mm (hole to hole) and often much larger, which is why the smaller seeds (10 mm and less) are scarce and very sought after. The majority of seeds in the marketplace have been shaped and polished to make them smaller. These are the best natural seeds we have been able to find.

With regular use Bodhiseed will turn darker and develop a wonderful usage patina. They are considered to be the most appropriate mala to use for all types of Vajrayana practice.

This mala is comprised of 108 beads plus the Guru bead. The natural colour of the seed may vary slightly.

Only 10 mm seeds currently available. Beads are measured from hole to hole.

Colour of tassle may vary.

Please expect natural variations in each seed.
