The 16th Karmapa saw this flag in a dream and proclaimed that "Wherever this banner is flown, the Dharma will expand." The 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje lived from 1924-1981, and his proclamation did come true, because he is credited with bringing Buddhism to the West. In the Gelugpa tradition, the Dalai Lama is the leader. The Karmapa is revered in the Kagyu tradition.
We also have some new wood carvings in stock in two different color combinations. Both styles have the om mani padme hum mantra across the front of the wood carving.
Both carvings were handmade and hand-painted in Nepal. $49
