A seed is a symbol of the continuity of the circle of life and is one of the earliest materials of adornment. They have been traditional tools for counting white reciting a mantra. There is a special significance of Bodhi seeds for seekers of divine wisdom because it was under a Bodhi tree where Prince Siddhartha meditated and attained his enlightenment and became Buddha.
White Jade Bodhi is the core of oil palm, which is as white as jade after being polished,that is why it is calledWhite Jade Bodhi.
In Sanskrit, Bodhi is translated to “enlightened” or “awakened,” so the bodhi seed means “enlightened seed.” Bodhi is also considered in Buddhism as reflecting a Buddha’s understanding of the true nature of things. “Bodhi seeds” do not refer to actual seeds of the Bodhi tree but are generally seeds of various plants used to make prayer beads.
