Ven. Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche has demonstrated his skills in arts and crafts for many years. He has made traditional cloth mountings for thangkas, shaped sculptures of Tibetan kings, painted memories of Ngor monastery, created Wealth and Earth Treasure Vases, and much more.


PARNASHAVARI MANTRA by Lama Kunga Rinpoche

Recently, Rinpoche has been making traditional Tibetan calligraphy.
Here is a sample piece that is the mantra of Bodhisattva goddess Parnashavari, the subduer of pandemics. This is written on Tibetan rice paper, and it is 15″ x 7″, unmounted. It is signed with Rinpoche’s signature as well as stamp. (Note that the brown on the top and bottom here is the table surface.)
Because of the pandemic, Lama Kunga has done the Parnashavari mantra. He is open to accepting orders for some other mantras
, as well as other size presentations.

You may receive one of Lama Kunga Rinpoche’s calligraphy pieces with a donation of $108.
