◈ What namkhas are?
Namkha charms is an ancient method for protection and harmonization of energy and life.
They came from Bön – tradition of Tibet, which was spread widely before Buddhism had come to the country
namkha invites fortune, removes obstacles, protects and harmonizes life
You can find similar charms throughout the world: in India, Africa, North and South America. The shape of charms may differ, but all of them are made in the same way.
In South America such charms are called “Ojos de Dios” – God’s eye.
Slavs also had such charm and called it “God’s eye”.
As you see, each charm has an “eye” – easy visible central element.
Many people had such item in their culture. It was essential to protect inhabitants’ life from negative powers, illnesses, bring fortune and increase everything positive: prosperity, long life, merits, etc.
Every people had it’s own tradition to empower charms. Today rituals mostly are lost due to expancy of modern religions.
Tibet and his culture is an exclusion: down to Chinese occupation it saved their unique culture and kept lineages of ancient methods to work with energy. Bon rituals were integrated to Buddhism and survived through ages.
◈ namkhai norbu legacy
Bon and Buddhist communities still make Namkha charms.
One of the accurate techniques was recovered by famous tibetan master Chogyal Namkhai Norbu. He discovered exact and holistic method to make and empower Namkhas in 1983.
He received this teaching as mind terma, experiencing a dream.
Such masters, able to discover termas, are known as tertons.
Chogyal Namkhai Norbu, famous master of Tibetan Buddhism.
◈ Why Namkha is not a simple ethnic mandala
Namkha making is based on accurate astrological calculations. Each Namkha is personally calculated for each individual. That’s why Namkha charms differ from other ethnic or esoteric charms.
Every Namkha must be empowered with a special ritual– otherwise it won’t work. Ritual requires a transmission from a master in the tradition of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu.
Empowerment must be provided on the regular basis – the best option is once a month.
◈ No personal beliefs are required
No one needs faith to benefit from Namkha charms. They work independently and without any personal beliefs.
Namkhas are accessible to people of all religions, agnostics and atheists.
Namhkas are not magic or misterious amulets
they are a part of a buddhist tradition
