The term vajra is a Sanskrit word that is usually defined as "diamond" or "thunderbolt." Additionally, it is a weapon won in battle which is used as a ritual object to symbolize both the properties of a diamond (indestructibility and hardness) and a thunderbolt (irresistible force and invincibility). A diamond is spotlessly pure and indestructible. The Sanskrit word means unbreakable or impregnable, being durable and eternal.
Bodhi in sanskrit translates to “enlightened” or "awakenened," therefore the bodhi seed means “enlightened seed.” Bodhi is also a term in Buddhism to reflect a Buddha's understanding of the true nature of things. Many Buddhist wear the bodhi seeds during their meditation practices to ultimately reach enlightenment. The seeds have a special significance to all seekers of divine wisdom as it is under the bodhi tree that Buddha became enlightened. Each seed brings a sense of peace and wisdom on the path to one's own enlightenment.
