Monastery Foundation (DTMF) is a charity founded by His Eminence Khejok
Rinpoche and registered in Hong Kong as a not-for-profit organization. It
is dedicated to the rebuilding of destroyed Tibetan Buddhist monasteries,
the revival of Buddhism and Tibetan culture such as Tibetan medicine, thangka-painting,
butter sculptures, sand mandala and statue-making in Tibet and China, free
education for sangha and the poorer people of Tibetan regions as well as
providing medical services at minimal or no costs in those regions.
While accepting donations from sponsors worldwide, the Foundation, together with Dhe-Tsang Monastery, runs a number of businesses to generate funds for the maintenance of monasteries under its care. This Cyber Dharmaware shop is such a venture and is staffed solely by volunteers. 100% of the profits go to Dhe-Tsang Monastery Foundation's charitable ends. Thus whenever you make a purchase, you are making a direct contribution to the causes for which the DTMF is dedicated to.
In accordance to the lineage instructions, we avoid selling Buddhist statues, paintings and sacred texts. While we make certain such items available on requests and from time to time to fulfill the needs of people who otherwise have no access to them, the profits resulting from such sales are strictly used for the purposes of making statues, printing or purchasing Dharma texts for donating to monasteries who could not afford them. The profits are not used for the rebuilding of the monastery or the running of our Foundation.
Dhe-Tsang Mahakala Juniper Incense - Each packet contains over 50 grams of the powdered-incense made from aged Juniper needles hand picked from the high snowy mountains of eastern Tibet. The incense is kept in the holiest chapel of Dhe-Tsang Monastery, the Mahakala Chapel, for days as per tradition before performing the final blessing rituals. In the past, pilgrims would walk from as far as Wutaisan, Amdo and Mongolia to Dhe-Tsang to pay respect to the protector and to receive small quantities of this blessed substance, well-known for its power. This incense can be used as a fragrant offering when lighted either on its own or on charcoal. The fragrant smoke is psychically cleansing for residences and prevents sicknesses, harm from non-humans and black magic. The powerful substance could be worn (in small quantity packed in containers) as a amulet also. Traditionally it is regarded as supreme offering to the holy beings as well as an invocation for the powerful protector Mahakala. US$8
