The Kartika

Updated: Mar 28

Kartikas are sacred objects that have been used in Tibetan Buddhism for centuries. These unique tools have a fascinating history and are deeply intertwined with Tibetan culture and spirituality. At, we are proud to offer an exclusive kartika that has a truly extraordinary story behind it. Our exclusive kartika is from the 18th-19th century and was used by warriors in an actual battle. It is made from brass with an iron blade, making it a sturdy and durable piece that has withstood the test of time. This kartika is a one-of-a-kind piece that has been carefully preserved and is now available for purchase exclusively at

Kartikas are symbolic of the power of compassion, which can cut through ignorance and negative emotions. The kartika is a three-sided blade that represents the three poisons of ignorance, attachment, and aversion. The top of the kartika represents the enlightened mind that can cut through these poisons and free one from suffering. In Tibetan Buddhist practice, the kartika is used as a ritual object in tantric ceremonies, particularly in the Chöd practice. The Chöd practice is a powerful technique that involves the practitioner visualizing themselves cutting through their own ego and self-cherishing, offering their body to benefit all sentient beings. The kartika is used as a symbol of the practitioner's determination to cut through their own attachments and negative emotions. Our exclusive kartika has a unique and powerful history that sets it apart from other kartikas on the market. This kartika was actually used in battle by Tibetan warriors, making it a rare and valuable piece of Tibetan history.

In addition to our exclusive kartika, we also offer a variety of other kartikas that have been handcrafted by skilled artisans in Tibet. Each kartika is made with the utmost attention to detail and is imbued with the blessings of Buddhist masters. Our kartikas come in a variety of styles and designs, ranging from simple and elegant to intricate and ornate. At, we are committed to offering our customers authentic and high-quality Tibetan artifacts that have been made with care and reverence. We believe that each of our kartikas is a unique and powerful tool that can help practitioners on their spiritual path.
