The Bodhi seeds used in this mala come from the Bodhi tree, which is revered in Buddhist traditions as the tree under which the Buddha attained enlightenment. These seeds symbolize spiritual awakening, enlightenment, and the potential for inner transformation.

What sets this antique mala apart is the exquisite inlay work incorporated into the design. Skilled artisans delicately embed precious and semi-precious gemstones, metals, or other materials into the Bodhi seed beads, enhancing their beauty and creating intricate patterns or motifs.

At the center of the mala, there is often a larger bead known as the guru bead or the meru bead. This bead serves as a focal point and represents the starting and ending point of the mala. It symbolizes the guidance and wisdom of the spiritual teacher or guru, reminding the practitioner of their connection to the sacred teachings.

The Antique Inlay Indian Bodhi Seed Japa Mala is not only a piece of jewelry but also a powerful tool for spiritual practice. It can be used for japa, the repetition of sacred mantras, to help focus the mind and deepen one's spiritual journey. The inlay work adds an extra layer of intention and beauty to the practice.
