Vajrasattva (Tib. Dorje Sempa) is the vajrayana "Lord of the Mandalas." He is the union of the hundred peaceful and wrathful deities (who appear at the time of the bardo/intermediate state) and is the supreme deity of purification.
This is the only thangka of Vajrasattva that Yedor was able to get in his last trip to Bhutan. Don't miss out!
Avalokitesvara (Tib. Chenrezik) is probably the most famous of Buddhist deities after the Buddha. He is known throughout Buddhist cultures. Known in China as
Guanyin and Kannon in Japan, he often appears as a goddess in the Far East. In vajrayana teachings, Avalokitesvara is considered a Buddha, the Buddha of Compassion and has many different forms - some peaceful and others wrathful. This standing form of Avalokitesvara is known as Khasarpani. This form isn't often found in thangka shops - a rare find!
Tibetan Buddhists remember Padmasambhava ("Lotus Born") as being "most kind" to Tibetans as it is due to him that the Buddha's teachings were successfully established in Tibet in the 8th century. His role as teacher and guide for all Tibetans earned him the affectionate name "Guru Rinpoche" ("the Precious Guide"). He has many forms such as the "8 Aspects of Guru Rinpoche." His blessings is especially helpful to those who are new to the Dharma, and particularly vajrayana Dharma.
Tara (Tib. Drolma) is praised as the "mother of all buddha-activities" and is compassion-in-action. She is swift in providing protection and care for those who invoke her and is said to have vowed to always appear in the female form to deliver beings from dangers and sufferings. There are many forms of Tara but Green Tara (Tib. Droljang) is often considered to be the principle form of TarGET IT HERE
Vajrapani (Tib. Chakna Dorje) is the Buddha of Power - he is the "Lord of Esoteric Teachings" and said to be the main recipient of the Buddha's vajrayana teachings. Vajrapani's powers are related to the subjugating of demonic forces, the suppression of negativity and in particular the disturbances that can come from subterranean spirits such as nagas. Those suffering from demonic oppression and skin and blood diseases are often advised to connect to Vajrapani's blessingsGET IT HERE
Vaishravana (Tib. Namthosey) is the directional protector-king of the North. He is the embodiment of Perfection of Generosity, the Lord of Wealth (associated with Jambhala), an emanation of Ratnasambhava. He also is the patron deity of many monasteries as it is said that he has promised to ensure that no monastery will suffer poverty as long as its residents are pure in their observation of monastic vows and conduct. Je Tsongkhapa considered Vaishravana to be the most suitable dharmapala for those who are just beginning to turn their minds towards Dharma.
We have 4 different variations to choose from!
Katags (khataks) are Tibetan ceremonial scarves offered to one’s teachers or anyone who is being honored. It is said that offering katags is the Tibetan adaptation of the Indian tradition of offering flower garlands. Since sourcing flowers large enough to make garlands are near impossible in most parts of Tibet, flower garlands have been replaced by silk scarves woven with auspicious symbols. We recently found a family that makes this one-of-it’s-kind katag - a couple of Tibetan grandsons are helping their grandmother market the katags that she makes. This is one of our most exciting new finds in Kathmandu in our last pilgrimage there!GET IT HERE

Palo santo (“Sacred Wood”) is a natural resinous wood that the indigenous people of the Andes use for ritual purification and cleansing.

Widely used in folk medicine as well to soothe stomach ache & treat rheumatism. It has a pleasant vanilla aroma with underlying notes of frankincense.GET IT HERE
