For more than a month the Buddha meditated beneath a fig tree in Bodh Gaya, India. After 49 days, he stood from his meditative position and gave thanks to the tree for its shade and found enlightenment. The fig tree that sheltered Buddha became known as the Bodhi Tree or tree of enlightenment.
The Enlightened Mala necklace is handcrafted with an authentic Bodhi seed from Nepal as the guru bead just above the tassel. The mala features 108 tiger's eye, serpentine, tiger ebony wood beads and accents of gold with a black tassel.
Tiger's Eye is a grounding stone, it was traditionally carried as a talisman to ward off negative energy. It is supportive in practical perception, helpful for resolving dilemmas brought about by pride and willfulness. It is known to be a healing stone for issues of self-worth, self-criticism, and blocked creativity.
Serpentine symbolizes balance and aids meditation and spiritual exploration.
Tiger Ebony features a unique brown/black pattern, the wood is from Southeast Asia. The wood beads are smooth with a dark brown/black color.
Affirmation:Today I seek enlightenment. Today I experience enlightenment. Today I am enlightened. Breathing in, I feel peace. Breathing out, I am peace.
