Click for more info

Probably the finest iron ritual phurbas available in the world today! These pieces have been hand crafted by a Tibetan family who have been making ritual phurbas for more than 50 years. Iron is notoriously difficult to carve and these pieces have been worked entirely by hand. The attention to detail is unsurpassed. It has taken the maker more than 6 months to create just 10 phurbas for us, so this should give you an idea of the time and effort involved in each piece. This is the kind of work only commissioned by high Lamas and monasteries. They are large and majestic and have an awesome presence.

Treasure Vase
FINE QUALITY TREASURE VASE
Our Price: £400.00

We currently have only 2 vases available that were consecrated by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche around 5 years ago. They are from the original batch of vases that were consecrated by Rinpoche before his parinirvana and are therefore extremely precious. Once these are sold we will not have more.

The History of Tibetan Treasure Vases

Buddha Padmasambhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, gave specific instructions for the creation of treasure vases to assist with the healing of the environment and the restoration of vital energy for the many beings and realms during these degenerate times.

The treasure vase is an ancient remedy that can replenish the essence of the elements – earth, air, fire, water and space. When the outer environment is purified, beings are released from suffering and energy is revitalized in all realms.



Padmasambhava prescribed the magnetizing contents of the treasure vases which include pictures and mantras of Khandro Norlha the wealth manifestation of Padmasambhava.

The vases are filled to the brim with medicine balls whose most important ingredient is "mother pills". The main substances in mother pills are called yang-dzay rilbu (essential wealth substance pills). Padmasambava originally hid these substances for future generations of beings. Many treasure revealers discovered these hidden substances. His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche collected the substances from the ten-gam (treasure collections) of Mipham Rinpoche, Mindroling Terchen, and Khyentse Rinpoche, and many other precious substances created by sublime beings. From these substances Dudjom Rinpoche made the original "mother pill".

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche received original "mother pills" from Dudjom Rinpoche and expanded them. He added the twenty-five precious substances: the five precious jewels, the five precious essences, the five precious medicines, the five precious scents, and the five precious grains; plus tsa-sum (three roots), tsi-zhi (four flower essences), nyingpo-nga (five essences) and zangpo-druk (six excellences). He also added a very rich collection of jewels and minerals: opals, diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, rubies, turquoise, coral, pearl, dZi stone, chong stone, gold silver, copper, and so on: and additional precious substances such as soil, stone, and water collected from many of the world's holy and famous places.

Each gilded treasure vase has a height of approximately 10 inches.

Vases are shipped by 'Special Delivery' to UK customers and 'Global Priority' for all overseas customers.

Antique Tibetan Silver Spoon
Antique Tibetan Silver Medicine Spoon - 19th C
Our Price: £150.00

A hand beaten Tibetan silver spoon. The bowl and handle is beautifully engraved with a floral design. In the centre of the spoon handle is a raised vajra with space for a cabachon. Spoons such as this have been valued for centuries in Tibet and the Himalayan regions.

Spoons were typcially used for taking medicinal remedies and silver was considered to have special antiseptic properties. The silver itself may have been heirloomed within a family for many centuries before it was eventually used in the making of a spoon or other utensils. It means a spoon may once have started life as several pieces of silver jewellery.

Rare Iron Phurba or Kila Pendant
Superior Iron Phurba or Kila Amulet Pendant - Large Size - Crafted in Tibet
Our Price: £85.00

A very fine hand crafted iron phurba amulet and practice support from Tibet. We are delighted to be able to offer work from Tibetan artisans as most modern day ritual items are coming from Nepal and India. Each piece is individually hand carved and can take a considerable amount of man hours to complete. It is extremely difficult to carve pieces of this size in such fine detail, so these truly are wearable works of sacred art. They are slightly larger in size than the other iron Phurba pendants in our inventory, which allows finer detail to be displayed. For example you will notice that additional flames have been engraved on the blade. The earrings are also larger and the overall piece is much darker in colour. These are not just amulets that can be worn but are equally valid as ritual supports.

The three sided blade is held in the mouth of the mythical sea creature known as a Makara and represents the power to transform the "three poisons" or kleshas into wisdom. The three wrathful deity heads at the apex represent the three kayas and inwardly represent the three channels of the body.

length approx 7.6 cms
width approx 1.5 cms
Material: Iron
Origin: Tibet

Please note that these pieces are individually crafted. This means each phurba will have its own unique character. Slight variations in detail should be expected.

Tip: If you notice rust appearing on any iron ritual item, simply use a toothbrush (used for this purpose only) to gently apply olive oil to the affected areas and then remove any residue with a soft cloth.
