We also have malas, mala counters, necklaces, Tibetan knitted hats, gloves, socks...please enquire for photos and details.

Stupa Project at Gaden Tashi Choling Retreat
Amazing progress is being made with the construction of the stupa at Gaden Tashi Choling Retreat in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada! These pictures from the worksite in Nelson, (as well as the decorative work being done in Mongolia) are so impressive. Our fundraising efforts continue, so that this wonderful work may continue. If you would like to donate to this project, please visit the Gaden for the West website.
