White Tara Sungkhor-Amulet
- 1.25" X 1.25"
- 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.
Tara is the supreme female deity in Buddhism. As the embodiment of the active aspect of buddhas' compassion, she is "mother of all buddha-activities." Tara has many forms such as the "Taras Who Protect from the 8 Great Dangers" and the "21 Taras." White Tara is particularly related to longevity and the prevention of accidental and untimely deaths. Wearing her sungkhor keeps one protected from all dangers - both outer and inner.
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!]
