Reviews of Spiritual Products >> Meditation mala
Bodhi seeds are the seeds of the tree under which Lord Buddha meditated and attained His enlightenment.
These seeds usually measure some 10 to 14 mm in diameter. Since a long time ago, they have been dried, drilled, and strung into Bodhiseed Malas. Being so hard and durable, they are very convenient for chanting or mantra meditation and can be used in any meditation practice.
Historically, Bodhi seeds have been used in the Tibetan and Hindu tradition, but if you need a tool to move forward your meditation practice or prayers, they will work equally well in any tradition or spiritual school.
Bodhiseed Malas are generally the most prevalent religious malas for Tibetan Buddhists. For the wast majority of meditators, the Bodhi seed does serve as the "seed of prayer."
The Bodhiseed mala we are presenting here is extremely appealing. The beads are of excellent quality and aesthetically pleasing. This mala slides well with your prayers to God and can be worn effectively as well. It accompanies a lovely sack for safety's sake.
The number 108 is very significant in the Yogic tradition. It has cosmological, metaphysical and practical implications. If you use this mala in a mantra meditation, the single most important thing is to repeat the mantra with truthfulness, dedication, feeling, and full consideration.
The beads are amazing. They are a lot larger than I had expected though. So much so, I can't wear them on a daily basis. (I posted a photo with a normal sized remote for comparison). However, for the purpose they were made for, they are perfect. If you have been looking for a set and, like me, you are tired of the cheap ones, these are great.
As far as we know, this Tibetan Mala is available on the Amazon.com website.

This mala is fantastic and rather inexpensive. It has the obvious advantage that you get to meditate with beads produced from the same type of tree Lord Buddha chose to sit under and attain His ultimate spiritual realization. Namaste!
I've used several malas before, but this is absolutely the best. The beads have a nice feel to them and are well made. The individual beads are just big enough to get a nice feeling in your fingers but still soft and nice. The package came fast and I'm very thrilled to have them.
