They are believed to represent spiritual awakening and the potential for growth and transformation. The presence of Bodhi seeds in this antique mala embodies the essence of the Bodhi tree, symbolizing the journey toward self-realization and enlightenment.

The mala itself is a string of beads traditionally used for counting repetitions of prayers, mantras, or affirmations. Typically, a mala consists of 108 beads, although variations with different bead counts can be found. The repetition of prayers or mantras with each bead helps the practitioner maintain focus, deepen their meditation, and cultivate a state of mindfulness.

Using the Antique Bodhi Seed Japa Mala during meditation or prayer holds profound spiritual significance.
