1. Medicine Buddha

Medicine Buddha is revered as the most powerful blessing for healing, despelling sickness and for awakening inner healing. His body is blue, left hand is in the meditation mudra, and holds a begging bowl full of healing medicine. His other hand is also outstretched offering help and healing. Hanging this prayer flag is very beneficial as placing this in your home or garden will allow the healing mantras on the flags to be sent out and spread peace, this is particularly beneficial as a gift item to someone who is sick. "Om Bhaisajya Bhaisajya Maha Bhaisajya Rajaya Samudgate Svaha" is the mantra of the Medicine Buddha.  If one recites this mantra, one can eliminate the sickness of body and gain a long life.

About Prayer Flags

Prayer Flags are auspicious flags that contain images of deities, mantras and prayers, which are traditionally believed to bring happiness, peace, prosperity, good fortune, health and victory over the obstacles. Prayer Flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength and wisdom. Prayers inscribed on prayer flags protect from destructive evils and obstacles toward the flag planter and all sentient being. Tibetans believe that the prayers and mantras will be blown upwards as an offering to their deities and will bring fortune, happiness and good health to all who hang them.

How we directly support the locals

Since 1980 Karma and Zumki Lama have brought thousands of items made from Tibetan Refugees living in Nepal and India. As Tibetan refugees themselves, they were shocked by how much people in America loved our culture and our craftsmanship. After selling for a while, they decided to bring the wealth back home and support the struggling communities and artisans. We only buy directly from the local artisans and make sure there is no middle man to take away their hard earned money. We make sure to visit Nepal and India at least twice a year and always find new items and artists to work with. Over the years we have developed strong bonds with the artisans and always make sure to keep in touch and see that their life improves under our support. 

How we have grown

Due to your support and our continued success, we have expanded beyond just Nepal and India and now source our products ethically, from mainly Southeast Asia. (Thailand, Bali) We have expanded our collection due to the repeated requests of our customers asking for more and more culturally diverse products, and have made some new friends along the way. 

With your support

You can directly impact the local artisans by visiting either Nepal and India and experiencing the rich and vibrant culture. Many small independent businesses fail due to the changing times, and this, in turn, affects the local artisans in small villages in Southeast Asia creating a domino effect. With your support, we can continue supporting our friends from Southeast Asia and continually grow to impact their lives in a positive fashion.
