Star & Moon Bracelet
Buddha sat under the pipal tree and once he obtained enlightenment under their sacred branches it was then referred to as the "Bodhi" tree. Buddha means the "enlightened one" and BODHI means "enlightened."
As an "enlightened" seed many practitioners use these malas for their essence and inherent teachings within each seed.
The seed of the Bodhgaya Bodhi will become a dark brown over time as the oils of your skin permeate the seed. The Nepali bodhi will become a rich colour with a sheen.
NOTE: The two images to the right are THE SAME BEAD - the change in colour comes with wear as the oils in your skin permeate the seed.
