Mandala canopy

Post by tingdzin » Tue Jan 07, 2020 11:45 am

Does anyone have a good plan for constructing, or know of a place for purchasing, a good-sized (20" or 50 cm. on a side) shrine canopy of the sort used in covering mandalas and accoutrements during a major ceremony or empowerment? Even a picture that I could use as a model would be helpful.

Did you check potalagate? If they don't have one listed, maybe try emailing and see if they can acquire for you.

do you mean like the parasol that hangs over the throne sometimes?

Something like that, but a good deal smaller obviously.

I'll check out Potalagate, thanks.
