Kurukulle Sungkhor

  • 2" X 2"
  • water-proof casing

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.

Kurukulle (Tib. Rikjedma) is the goddess of enchantment and attraction. She is often considered a form of Tara - a red Tara - whose energy is to attract all positive conditions that will support our spiritual growth. Those who connect to her energy will be blessed with goodwill from others, abundance of resources and brightness of mind. Other popular forms of Tara include White Tara, Red Tara and Yellow Tara.

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. 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!]
