This short documentary by Lubosh Cech shows the process of creating and blessing Tulku jewelry. Filmed in Kathmandu, Nepal in 2009, the film takes you to the magical place where Tulku jewelry is born. Meet the principal craftspeople Karla works with: Rajendra Bajracharya, Kiran Shakya, and Pravin Chitrakar. Mata—though unable to be filmed—is shown as she blesses the amulets.

Our hope is that, by sharing this video, the spirit of love and devotion our work is infused with is made more palpable. Enjoy!

tulku "the form body of a Buddha"
In the Tibetan tradition, a tulku is the recognized reincarnation of a past buddhist master who takes rebirth to bring blessings and benefit to all beings. Tulku jewels, like the name they embody, represent the rebirth of spirit into a new form. They are tools to remind us of our divine nature which is unbounded by time or space.

TULKU donates custom amulets and a percentage of all proceeds towards the following organizations:

One Heart Worldwide
One Heart World-Wide has developed an unique model to prevent the deaths of mothers and their infants in remote rural areas of the world. Simply put, we surround each mother and infants with a “Network of Safety” to insure that they will survive pregnancy, childbirth and the first months of life.

Blue Deer Center
The Blue Deer Center provides an important setting for teachings and practices that promote balanced relationship with the natural world. We particularly welcome ancestral approaches to healing, ritual, and retreat. The Center's origins are rooted in the Huichol shamanic tradition and our connection to the universal and sacred spirit of fire.
