The bodhi seeds on this Antique Tibetan Bracelet are 100% genuine antique Tibetan bodhi 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 vibrant dark red color. The bodhi seeds on this Antique Tibetan Bracelet have been cleaned and re-strung in Tibet, in Tibet, with durable stretchy cord, an agate bead, a silver guru bead and a tassel.
The eye formation and veins on these bodhi seeds are still quite visible. However, they may retain some very small knicks and scratches from wear and tear. The holes of each bodhi seed are also worn down and of irregular shape.
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.
