This Mala joins together two of the most sacred seeds in history: Rudraksha (The Tears of Shiva) and Bodhi (The Seed of Enlightenment). Using traditional mala stringing methods and colors, the Mala of the Sacred Seeds is sure to deepen your practice. Rudraksha beads are regarded as the timeless jewels of the gods and find mention in ancient Puranas and Upanishads as being the most powerful aid in the path of Self-realization. Bodhi seeds manifest limitless potential for any form of practice - be it peaceful, expansive or powerful. As an "enlightened" seed, many practitioners use this bead for their essence and inherent teaching within the seed.
