Sungkhors (lit. ""protection-chakra"") are protective charms/amulets that contain 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.

Sungkhors come in different sizes - many to wear around your neck and others to be placed in your home or vehicle. These sungkhors are for the home, workplace or business. They can be placed above doors and entryways or they can be placed on a mantle or shrine.
There are four variants in these large sungkhors we offer: Amitabha, Medicine Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha and Vajravarahi. Each of them have their own mandalas and mantras. On the reverse of each of these sungkhors is the Sipa'i-ho diagram - an astrological diagram that averts problems and disturbances that arise from astrological clashes.
[Note: Although these sungkhors can be used 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!]
