Guru Rinpoche Sungkhor-Amulet
Sungkhors (lit. "protection-chakra") are protective charms/amulets that contain miniature mandalas of specific deities folded and covered with intricate handwoven colored string designs stipulated by vajrayana texts of the specific deities. Although all enlightened deities are perfect in their blessing qualities, each deity is often associated with a different enlightened quality.

Guru Rinpoche or Padmasambhava is famed as the "second Buddha" among Buddhists in the Himalayan region as they credit him as the person who made it possible for Buddhism to be established in that region. He is considered as having power over all unruly forces and ultimately he is seen as the embodiment of the "buddhas of the past, present and future." Connecting to Guru Rinpoche is especially beneficial to those who are new to vajrayana practice.
This amulet can be worn around the neck or placed inside your pocket, your wallet or handbag. You can also hang it at home or in your car.
[Note: Although these sungkhors can be worn immediately, it is often advised that owners have them personally blessed and consecrated by a qualified lama to unlock the maximum effect of these powerful protective charms. Tibetan Spirit can arrange for this if a lama isn't available in your area.
You can use the “Tip” option at checkout to send a small offering to the lama for the blessing of the sungkhor as it is customary to do so but by no means required.
Much of sungkhors available online claim that they have been "pre-blessed by high lamas" are of dubious origins unless the seller is directly associated with a bona-fide Buddhist organization or monastery - always ask!]
