Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade

After the massive earthquakes that tragically struck Nepal in 2015, the people of Nepal are still struggling to heal emotionally and physically.

Relief workers in Kathmandu have told us that one of the most important things we can do to help Nepalese families regain a sense of normalcy is to provide trade so that people can once again wake up in the morning and go to work. We encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.

DharmaCrafts has committed to donate 5% of the sales revenue of all Nepalese products throughout 2015 and 2016 to earthquake relief efforts. A large percentage of our donation will go to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center. Upaya's example of engaged Buddhism is inspirational to us and to our efforts. DharmaCrafts will also contribute to the Save the Children Fund.

Garden Hotei Statue

In China, Hotei is the god of good fortune and the guardian of children. His overly round shape indicates an abundance of inner wealth and a joy-filled soul. In fact, he was an actual person Ch'i-tz'u, a 10th century Zen monk who wandered throughout China giving generously from his never empty sack. Only at the time of his death did he reveal his true identity as the incarnation of Maitreya, the Buddha of the future.

Our Resin Garden Statue Collection

We are delighted to offer this exceptional collection of Buddhist statues for the garden. They are hand cast in resin, a remarkably durable substance that has become the material of choice for producing garden ornaments. Resin has the appearance of metal and the feel of wood. It is much lighter in weight than concrete and offers heightened detail.

We chose a beautiful rust patina for the statues in this collection and allowed them to weather for several weeks prior to photographing them. They are appropriately placed both outdoors in the garden or indoors.

Originally carved by village craftspeople in Bali, the statues are cast and finished in California according to strict state environmental regulations. Made in USA.
