- Our damarus are handmade in Nepal and blessed by Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche. Each is constructed with high quality acacia wood, buffalo skin, and brocade, all selected by senior lamas at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery. The required daka and dakini mantras are hand-written inside according to Chokling Tersar tradition. The damaru comes with a brocade tail and cover.
The damaru (ritual drum) is an essential implement of Vajrayana sādhanā practice. The shape and make of this particular damaru is suited for the Inner Tantras. Through the consecration of samadhi, mantra, and blessed substance, the damaru becomes an instrument capable of beseeching the minds and hearts of the dakas and dakinis, thereby enhancing the altruistic power of the practitioner. Therefore, it is important that we view this sacred instrument not merely as a drum, but the embodiment of insight and compassion.
The sound of the damaru is resounding emptiness and the union of the two sides of the drum represents relative and ultimate bodhicitta.
