Raktu (Boyar) seeds are related to the more popular (and increasingly harder to source) phoenix-eye / bodhi seed from Namo Buddha area in Nepal. Malas made from seeds are said to be good for any kind of mantra practice. This is a good "starter mala" if you are new to the use of malas for your practice.
This is simple prayer bead mala features 108 Raktu seed beads that are hand strung on durable knotting cord. It is the perfect mala for meditation practice and every day wear. With meaning similar to the bodhi seed, many practitioners use raktu malas for their essence and inherent teachings of enlightenment within each seed.
These mala beads are great if you like a natural seed bead in a smaller size. Seed malas are some of the most common malas used in Tibet and Nepal. These seeds are sustainable and are harvested each year then drilled and made into mala beads.
That is how your Raktu Mala will looks after 8 years use.
