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.

Incense is known to have a calming effect on the mind. It is customary to offer incense before a period of meditation. Offering incense expresses our intention to let go of our individual, conceptual self and open to our awakened nature.
Incense is one of the eight traditional offerings — water for drinking, water for bathing, flowers, incense, light, perfume, food and music. When incense is lit, its beautiful fragrance expands and increases throughout space symbolizing the way morality, ethics, and discipline become the basic causes and conditions from which the qualities of wisdom and compassion grow.
