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.

Sitatapatra (Tib. Dukkar) or White Parasol is known for her powers to protect against sorcery, spirit harm, evil spells and malicious intents. She is a form of Tara and is well recognized throughout the Buddhist lands of East Asia and the Himalayan region.
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!]
