Excellent for use in both peaceful and wrathful practices and regarded as multiplying the effect of mantras infinitely, our standard Indian bodhi seed malas are an excellent choice for any practitioners.
The Vajra Peak Tantra states:
Ruby is said to multiply by one billion,
And the bodhi seed, to do so infinitely.
The bodhi seed, also known as putrajīva,
is the supreme rosary. It is auspicious for any
peaceful or wrathful practice.
Contrary to common belief, bodhi seed malas are not from actual “Bodhi Trees,” which produce a small fig-like fruit filled with many seeds. However, the seeds that dropped from a cousin species are considered to produce the foremost of all rosaries.
