In Buddhism, the lotus is the symbol for enlightenment. This full mala features black lotus seeds and has 108 8mm”-diameter beads plus a “guru” bead.
I ordered this mala to replace one I had purchased at a Mandala painting I attended in Florida years back. I searched very hard to find a suitable replacement. Unfortunately I was not sent the right one the first time around unfortunately however Monastery Store resolved this fairly quick. This mala is beautiful and very sturdy. I will likely purchase another at some point.
