Legend has it that long ago, under the shade of a Bodhi tree, Siddhartha Gautama, a young prince in ancient India, attained Enlightenment and became the Buddha, the Awakened One. This sacred event took place over 2,500 years ago and marked the historical beginning of what we have come to call Buddhism.

Even now, after millenia, people across the world continue to revere the Bodhi tree and its seeds for their spiritual significance. These seeds are believed to carry the tree's spiritual essence and are often used in meditation practices and prayer ceremonies.

Bodhi seeds, with their characteristic grooved appearance and natural aesthetic, are often used to create malas, which are strings of beads used for meditation and prayer. Bodhi seed malas are popular among practitioners of meditation and yoga due to their spiritual significance and natural beauty.

Wearing Bodhi seed jewellery helps people worldwide connect with the tree's deep rooted wisdom, grounding themselves in its tranquility.

Malas
The string of beads is mainly used to count repeated mantras. So actually, it serves the same purpose as a rosary. Beads made of semi-precious stones, pearls, bodhi seeds or wood may serve all kinds of goals, like counting any kind of mantras, or other forms of prayer, bows, walk-rounds and such. The cord is the same for every mala, and should be made of nine threads, symbolising the Buddha Vajradhara and the eight Bodhisattvas. The larger bead at the end - the Guru bead - stands for wisdom, realising the utter emptiness, and the cylindrical bead on top of the large bead symbolises the void itself. Together, they symbolise the triumph over all adversaries.

Mantras
The Mala with 108 beads is used while reciting or singing the mantras. 108 is the ideal number for all kinds of purpose. It is important that our thoughts will be pure while reciting or singing the mantra. Mantra is the practical use of secret powers which may help our progress. Mantra means a collection of letters from the alphabet. The effect will be made by repeating the mantra over and over again; this becomes more profound as one continues this recitation. Essential is the sound that is produced while reciting. This sound creates a unique spiritual imprint on the person who is reciting. They say that a mantra is like a human being; there are various stages to go through before reaching the final effect: "Purification of mental impressions." There are various mantras with an inherent potential power; these may only be personally transferred from Master to initiate. These are the so-called "Siddha Mantras". In Buddhism, the symbolic meaning of these images are "method and wisdom, the masculine and feminine principle." These counting devices are used while doing a retreat, reciting 100.000 mantras.
