Art made in Tibet by Tibetan monks

Tibetan Buddhist Scripture transport box

Starting at: $729.00

ThisTibetan scripture storage and transport box has two mantras, one on the top in Tibetan holy text and one on each end in Tibetan text. The front and back are very similar, featuring an offering bowl with Cintamani, the jewels of wisdom, flanked by two different types of medicinal fruits. The art work is very good, the colors are vibrant on this box; thematically it is about overcoming the delusions and poisons in our life that prevent us from advancing. This scripture storage box was never pressed into service and has been in storage for a few decades at the Senge Monastery. It is quite customary for the monasteries to make more items then they can distribute as they are in the business of providing Tibetan Buddhist functional art for the other monasteries all over Tibet. If it would have been sent out to be used for scripture storage the interior would have been stained a very dark purple. The top has the 6-syllable mantra of Avalokitshvara, OM MANI PADME HUM in the Tibetan Holy text that is similar to Sanskrit. Please read the iconography for more details as there are 7 syllables and the first syllable has a special meaning. The mantra on each end of the box is OM AH HOM, which is the "Body~Speech~Mind" of Buddha, as in one's acquisition of these properties and is written in the regular Tibetan script. The top opens by sliding to the right.

The Tibetan scripture storage box comes with a brush signed (signed by a monk at the monastery) Certificate of Authenticity; an iconography explaining the Buddhist symbols and the meaning of both mantras along with an image of the lama that blessed the box.
