Bodhi is the transliteration of Sanskrit bodhi, which means enlightenment, wisdom, knowledge, and path. Broadly speaking, it is the wisdom that cuts off the troubles in the world and achieves nirvana. Because the Buddha Sakyamuni attained enlightenment at the Bodhi tree, Bodhi means enlightenment and attainment of Buddhahood. According to Buddhist scriptures, using Bodhi Seeds to recite the Buddha's name can obtain immeasurable merits. Therefore, Bodhi Seeds have become one of the most widely used instruments, regardless of whether it is Sutra or Tantric. The bodhi tree is the tree of Bibala. When the Buddha was alive in the past, he was hundreds of feet tall. However, after being cut down many times, he was especially four or five feet tall. The Buddha sat under it and achieved perfect enlightenment, so it was called the Bodhi tree. There are more than thirty varieties of Buddha beads named after Bodhi. Among them, some are named according to the place of origin, such as Tiantai Bodhi, Dolphin Bodhi, etc.; some are named according to texture, such as Xingyue Bodhi, Phoenix Eye Bodhi, etc. Carrying a string of Bodhi beads will bring immeasurable blessings to people. Because Bodhi beads have such profound meaning, many Buddhist beads are usually named Bodhi beads.
