This listing is for a raktu seed wrist mala bracelet. On one of my trips to Nepal I came across the raktu seed, known as "the bodhi seed's brother" because the tree they fall from is similar to the bodhi tree. At this time, small bodhi seeds are very rare and therefor very expensive. This size raktu seeds provides a nice and affordable alternative to the small bodhi seed. Each of the beads measure approximately 7-8mm, but may vary slightly in size due to their handmade nature.
Suggested mantras for this mala:
"Om Muni Muni Maha Muni Ye Soha" to Lord Buddha Shakyamuni
"Om Tare Turi Tutari Turi Soha" to White Tara
"Tayatha Om Pekatse Pekatse Maha Pekatse Raza Samu Gati Soha" to Medicine Buddha
1. Hold the mala with the long knot at the top. Use thumb and forefinger from each hand to hold beads on either side of the knot (left hand holds the bead on the eft, right hand holds the bead on the right).
2. Pull hands apart and away from the long knot. Our malas are usually knotted a little tight so you can pull pretty hard!
3. To tighten, pull small beads at the end of the strings.
