Dark Lotus Seed Mala w/ red tassel
Rich, dark brown oval Indian Lotus Seeds emanate a softness for which the lotus flower is known. The plants rise up out of the muddy water to display a spectaular starburst flower with delicate petals.
Lotus seeds have been documented to still be viable after 100's of years. In 1923, a cache of lotus seeds was excavated from an ancient lakebed in Manchuria. Four seeds were planted, and three germinated. Radiocarbon dating suggested a probable age of 466 years at the time of germination. This is the oldest viable seed for which an age has been determined.
The Lotus Seed Mala is a good choice for overcoming obstacles. It provides a path for spiritual growth through realizing that what falls away in life no longer affects you, just as the raindrops fall away from the flower petals back into the pond.
