This altar table is made from elm wood by hand in Nepal, and it was also painted by hand. This is the larger of our two sizes of meditation tables. The great thing about this altar table is that it folds all the way down for storage and transport.
This altar table was handmade and hand-painted in Nepal. There is a dharma wheel symbol, probably the most quintessential Buddhist symbol, on the top of this table, and there are two small animals on the front of the table.
This table is the smaller size of our altar tables. It folds compactly, is light, and easy to carry for group meditation or yoga classes. This table was handmade in Nepal and there is a lotus flower, one of the Buddhist eight auspicious signs, on the top of the table.
For those who are starting out in meditation, having an altar table is an important tool to use as a focus of your meditation. Many people like to keep a variety of Buddhist meditation supplies on top of the altar table, including a Buddha statue, incense, offering bowls, etc. Here is an example of how you can set up your altar table.
