Authentic Chöd Damaru

& Sacred Implements

Made according to the ancient tradition

Using authentic Chod Damaru is a tremendous aid to the depth, power and benefit of your Chod practice, both for yourself, for healing others, and for healing the environment. We pioneered the return to these authentic Vajrayana implements over 10 years ago—Made by our Bhutanese fabricator in his small workshop according to ancient traditional methods and artistic integrity. With trees from Bhutan (one per  drum) and untreated Bhutanese goat skins, their powerful energetic and spiritual effects are immediately noticeable. Supporting their creation also assures that the science of these tantric Chod instruments of Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan will not be lost.

All items are NOT IN STOCK, but CUSTOM FABRICATED ON REQUEST. This includes SengDeng Chod Damaru from 8" to 10" in diameter. Please contact us with your request and for current prices, as they  fluctuate. Occasionally we receive special or extra items; these will be listed here on a monthly basis.

"The damaru was delivered yesterday, and I just wanted to let you know that it is everything, and much more, that I hoped it would be. It is an absolutely joy to hold and to play. I have never used another Chod damaru with the richness and complexity of tones that this one possesses. I knew the moment I picked it up that it was very special. Apart from its beautiful physical appearance and how good it feels to hold, when it sounds I sense a strong resonance with the entire mandala of deities that I strive to invoke every day in practice. Nothing could be better! So in short, thank you. And thanks to the artisans who worked with so much obvious care and patience to produce it."
