This Chakra Mala is made with 108 x 8mm rhaktu bodhi seed beads and 7 stones representing the 7 chakras. There are 108 Rudraksha beads – 27 between the OM Inscribed Guru Bead and the first and seventh Chakra stones and 9 between each of the Chakra stones. Strung on strong monastic-orange cord and finished with an adjustable knot. This adjustable knot will allow you to increase the circumference of the mala in order to slip it over the wrist if you want to wear it this way. Once on you cinch the knot back down snug.
RHAKTU BODHI SEED – The Bodhi Tree is the tree under which Siddhattha Gotama sat and contemplated and fought temptation and desire as he gained enlightenment and became Buddha. Wear these beads to constantly remind yourself of your goal of understanding and enlightenment.

Aventurine is used by those who either seek love from others or to better understand, and therefore love, themselves.
