The mala features 8mm rhaktu bodhi seed beads and is strung on strong 1.5mm cord. Bodhi seed beads are related to lotus seed, rudraksha, and bajra seed beads. Bodhi seed malas are significant in Buddhism because it is under the Bodhi Tree that the Budha gained enlightenment.
This mala was strung by hand in Nepal and has not been altered at all by me. There may be slight variation from mala to mala.
