The artwork on this beautiful handmade box features an intertwining knot, a symbol of the inter-relatedness of all things, centered over a print of a fierce yang cloud-dragon clutching pearls, symbolizing the activation of intuition and wisdom. Inside is a powerful pair of mandala patterned tingsha or prayer chimes. The chimes are individually handcast with solid bronze. Each set is professionally hand tuned to induce an immediate sense of centeredness and focus. There are no better quality tingsha to be found!
The tingsha are made by Tibetan artisans in India, known for their exceptional quality of craftsmanship. They are hung on an attractive waxed cotton cord (no leather!). The box is made in Nepal with Himalayan lokta paper, a sustainably harvested, tree-free eco paper. A great tool for meditators, teachers and anyone who is willing to take a moment to pause, breathe and relax. Instructions for a mini meditation are included.

Tibetan Nuns Project
Tibetan Nuns Project (TNP) was founded in 1987 to provide education and humanitarian aid to refugee nuns from Tibet and the Himalayan regions of India. Tibetan Nuns Project began when a group of 66 nuns appeared in Dharamsala, India. The 66 women had walked across the Himalayas from eastern Tibet to His Holiness the Dalai Lama's newly adopted homeland in northern India. They knew no one and were exhausted and ill. They wearily camped out in downtown Dharmsala, hope their long journey was near the end.
The Tibetan community immediately responded: Tibetan Women's Association organized emergency assistance to provide their basic needs and the Tibetan Nuns Project was born. Working with the Tibetan Women's Association and the Tibetan Government in Exile Department of Religion and Culture of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, TNP sought to finding a long-term solution to the problem of how to secure housing, medical care and most importantly, education for refugee nuns. A sponsorship program was created that continues to generate worldwide support.
Today, TNP sponsors over 650 nuns. TNP has established two nunneries [Shugsep and Dolma Ling] and provides sponsorship support for the nuns of Geden Choeling and Tilokpur in Dharmasala. Other building and housing projects include Sherab Choeling Nunnery in LaHaul-Spiti. More room is always need for newly arrived nuns seeking aid and asylum.
