This Tibetan Antique Bodhi Seed Mala is made with Tibetan beeswax amber and carnelian, and is strung with durable stretchy cord. The Antique Bodhi Seed Mala is symbolic of unity and awakening from attachment to worldly things. Tibetans believe that Tibetan beeswax can help to drive a much needed spiritual energy to coexist and work in harmony with others. And so, this Tibetan Mala is perfect for those who feel a lack of connection with others or feel cut-off from their respective community.
The Bodhi Seed is famed for its smoothness of skin, texture and eye formation. It is said that the Bodhi seed is enlightened and therefore referred as an "Enlightened Seed". Making it very useful for those who are on the path to attaining enlightened. Contrary to popular belief, bodhi seeds are from a tree related to the Rudraksha, called the Elaeocarpus Ganitrus, and not the actual Bodhi tree. The bodhi tree produces small seeds which are inside a tiny fig. These seeds are too small to be used for making malas.
The Baltic Sea region is home to some of the most authentic amber in the world. And some of the most sacred Tibetan malas are made of this Baltic amber. Tibetan beeswax is known as one of the Seven Treasures of Buddhism. And since time immemorial, the various esoteric sects of Buddhism, have used Tibetan beeswax to worship the Buddha, to show unity and to consecrate holy relics. In Tibet, beeswax is a symbol of unity and plays a pivotal role in Tibetan life. It is not only seen as an aesthetic necessity and the wealth of secular life, but more importantly, Tibetan beeswax embodies the uninhibited cultural spirit and religious beliefs of Tibetan people.
