BODHI comes from Sanskrit and means the experience of spiritual awakening in Buddhism.
Made of sandalwood and lotus seed
Sandalwood is a sacred wood with a lovely aromatic scent. It is used extensively in modern times for incense, aromatherapy, carvings, malas, Ayurvedic medicine, perfumes, and essential oils, where it is said to bring one closer to the Divine. It has been used for over 4000 years for purposes as diverse as building Hindu temples, embalming. Today, sandalwood is well-renowned for its meditation properties and its essential oil, commonly referred to as "liquid gold."
The lotus seed symbolizes spiritual growth and the ability to rise above difficulties. Like the lotus flower which grows and blooms in muddy water, the lotus seed also promotes spiritual and material prosperity.
