Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade

In the aftermath of the massive earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015, DharmaCrafts launched a project to aid the victims of this tragic disaster. Due to your support of Nepalese artisans and Rebuilding Nepal through Trade, DharmaCrafts was able to donate $12,224.00 to relief efforts. We are very happy that together we were able to benefit the victims of this terrible disaster. A large percentage of the donation went to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center and to the Save the Children Fund.

Although our Nepal initiative has officially ended, we encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.

Mala means “garland” in Sanskrit. A mala is a strand of prayer beads, much like a rosary, used to count repetitions of mantras and prostrations. A traditional mala is made of 108 beads because each mantra recitation is said to purify one of the 108 levels of mind. A hand mala is made with 18-27 beads, usually a multiple of 108.

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, black onyx is associated with protection and the dispelling of obstacles and negative energy.

Carnelian is associated with magnetizing energy that attracts favorable conditions for practicing the dharma. It is connected with second chakra and is thought to give energy and protection. It is associated with the Ratna and Padma Buddha families.
