Product Description

Amazingly fine Tsa Tsa, a bronze mould which makes perfect clay figurines of Lama Tsongkhapa or Je Tsongkhapa or Je Rimpoche.

Zongkapa Lobsang Zhaba, or Tsongkhapa (that literally menas "The man from Tsongkha", 1357–1419), usually taken to mean "the Man from Onion Valley", born in Amdo in 1357. He became a famous teacher of Tibetan Buddhism whose activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism.

We don't sell cheap clumsy moulds which you can usually find at the market. Our forms are extremely fine and detailed, so you can be sure — your Buddhas will come perfect.

Another important remark about high quality alloy our molds made from. Some laid person may think the alloy is not important. It is not true. There are a lot of low quality molds on the market that made from cheap copper allowy mixed with zink or iron and produced by powder metallurgy. They is easily fractured.
Beside from this, our molds are made from pure copper, that warrants long life and high detalisation of your Buddhas.

Accordingly some sources, Tsa Tsa originated from India and was introduced to Tibet at the end of Early Middle Ages. At the same time other sources point on its Bön (Tib.: བོན་, Wylie: bon) origination.

In this process small Buddha firurines are extruded through a metal mold. The material may vary depends on the purpose and tradition, but mostly is clay or cereal flour that can be mixed with certain precious substances, such as precious stones or metals, or ash of noble monks and high lamas.
