before we wereGraphic illustration of Xingyue Bodhi Xuanyue and Yueyan: What is Xingyue Bodhi in "Gaomi First Moon"?In the article, we showed the moon and moon eyes of Xingyue Bodhi. Today we are going to take a look at the moon eyes of Xingyue Bodhi and what is the "first moon" Xingyue from Huangteng fruit (the original fruit of Xingyue Bodhi) Bodhi, and why the price of Xingyue Bodhi in the first month is higher than the price of Xingyue Bodhi in Xuanyue.
What is Xingyue Bodhizi?
"Tibetan phoenix eyes, Han Xingyue" Xingyue Bodhi is the four bright pearls in the Bodhi world, which has the process of changing color, wrapping, and opening. Xingyue Bodhi seed is the seed of yellow vine, because each bead has a large point and many small points, like stars holding the moon, so it is called Xingyue Bodhi. Due to the length of wearing, the color and smoothness of bodhi seeds will also vary.
The Xingyue Bodhi Buddha beads not only have the profound meaning of achieving Bodhi, but also have the effect of warding off evil spirits. Wearing the Xingyue Buddha beads can increase wisdom and remove troubles. "Anle Collection 1" records: "Bodhi is the name of the supreme Buddha." The surface of the Buddha beads is evenly distributed with black spots, and there is a concave circle in the middle, which is shaped like stars supporting the moon. Holding the power of the moon, hence the name Xingyue Bodhi. Known as one of the "Four Famous Pearls" of Bodhi.
What is the original fruit of Xingyue Bodhi?
Xingyue Bodhi is the seed of the tropical plant yellow vine, which is also called red vine fruit. Although the seed skin of Xingyue Bodhi is yellow, after peeling off the shell, the pulp turns black, and after grinding it with sand, it becomes off-white. Hainan Yuanbao seeds are currently recognized as the Xingyue variety with the highest density. The reason why it is called Yuanbao is Because after being ground, the shape is similar to ingots, so it is called ingot seeds.
The reason why the yellow vine fruit is also called the red vine fruit is that if the yellow vine fruit is boiled in boiling water, the boiled water will turn red. The originally white pulp will turn red, hence the name.

How to distinguish between the first month and the last month of Xingyue Bodhi?
(1) Xingyue Bodhi shelled
(2) Xingyue Bodhi peeled
It can be seen from the picture that if the moon eyes obtained after shelling and skinning Xingyue Bodhi are to be in the middle of the plane, the left and right parts will be cut off. Therefore, after shelling and peeling the Xingyue bodhi seeds, the bead shape is closer to that of an apple circle. In the car mill, the apple circle is the least expensive, while the barrel beads need to be cut up and down, and the round beads need to be cut up and down, left and right. And if the moon eye is to be in the middle, more parts need to be cut, which is why the Xingyue Bodhi of the first month is more expensive than the Xingyue Bodhi of the Xuanyue.
