A Little Shop of Treasures...
The Temple Store is located on the main temple grounds and is open by request. If you come to visit please find one of the staff and we are happy to assist you.
The Temple Store started with our need for quality Tibetan incense and books for Nechung Rinpoche´s courses. We have expanded the store′s offerings to include jewelry, t–shirts, windchimes, pashmina shawls, textiles and much more. Your purchase and sharing of these items is a wonderful way to support the temple as well as to treat yourself or someone you love.
Textiles & Clothing
Brighten your day with the radiant colors of prayer flags flying in the breeze and the exquisite detail of our Gujarat tapestries. White katas, or prayer scarves, are perfect for offering to lamas and presenting on special occasions.
Our popular t-shirts are available in both the classic round logo and the square one with distinct peacocks in the foreground.
Vintage kimonos from Japan make great decorations, gifts or that special something to wear. Sarongs from Indonesia in silk, cotton or rayon can brighten any outfit.
Wrap yourself in the cloud-like cashmere of a pashmina shawl, some with embroidered detail.
