Malas from lotus blossom, Rudraksha or Bodhi tree
In Asia, malas are often made from the round seeds of plants that are frequently found in nature. They are available to everyone and therefore affordable. Particularly popular are the seeds of the lotus blossom, the Rudraksha tree or the well-known Bodhi tree, under which Buddha meditated. These seeds come from plants that have a mystique surrounding them and thus add a special touch to meditation.
