The Tibetans believe that when a lotus seed ages to a very dark color, it has become enlightened. And so, when worn it can gradually guide the wearer to spiritual enlightenment. The spiritual significance of the lotus seed is just like that of the auspicious lotus flower. The lotus flower emerges and blossoms in filthy water. And so the lotus seed symbolizes spiritual growth and the ability to rise above all obstacles. It is believed that the lotus seed will promote spiritual growth for the wearer and aid them in rising above all obstacles.
These Antique Tibetan Monk Beads are made with 100% authentic antique Tibetan lotus seeds. They have been pre-used in various types of spiritual and Buddhist practices for over a generation in Tibet. Overtime, these bodhi seeds have aged to a reddish, yellowish and brownish color. These Tibetan Monk Beads have been cleaned and re-strung in Tibet with durable stretchy cord.
