Sacred Geometry of Sri Yantra: The Sri Yantra also known as the Sri Chakra represents all the fundamental principals of Tantric philosophy. It is known as the best or supreme existing yantra and all other yantras derive from it.
The Yantra is the symbolic representation of the Mother Goddess. It is made up of linear and spatial ‘geometric permutations’ of the Goddess in the mandala. You find yantras in many sacred geometry works and the design of the Sri Chakra/Yantra is nine interwoven triangles, four of which represent the male principal (Shiva) and five inverted triangles representing Shakti, the feminine (creative) principal. An individual’s spiritual journey or path to enlightenment from material existence to ultimate ascension and enlightenment is mapped through the Sri Yantra, the spiritual journey is undertaken as a pilgrimage each step or elevation is an ascent to the centre. The Sri Yantra represents the totality of existence and can be used as a tool in meditation to contemplate the path to enlightenment and the nature of the universe and existence.

The smoke from the burning sage absorbs and dispels negative energy.

Himalayan Rope Incense: Making rope incense is a long-standing tradition in the Himalayan region of Tibet. It is made by farmers and other villagers during the off season. High quality aromatic medicinal herbs are gathered and dried and placed on Lokta paper made from Daphne bush. The herbal blend is placed in the paper and given an artistic twist to create the rope like strands. When lit the herbs purify the atmosphere. It is a ritual incense composed of 25 ingredients, including saffron, cloves, nagi, red and white sandalwood and 20 other medicinal herbs local to the Himalayan region. It is completely natural and does not include wooden sticks, glues or dyes. We suggest that you burn the rope incense by laying it flat in a Paua’ shell or earthenware dish, on a bed of dry sand or course rock salt. This allows the entire rope incense to burn safely and completely. Use a feather to gently distribute the smoke through your aura and around your body.
New Moon Alchemy Candle: Our popular New Moon Alchemy candle is made on the New Moon from 100% pure soy wax and fragranced with essential oils. It is enhanced with crystals, botanicals and programmed with sacred chants and mantras.
We suggest that each time you light your candle allow it to melt to the sides of the container before extinguishing the flame. This will prevent your candle from tunnelling and ensure the longevity (25HR + burn time) of your candle. Trim the wick to 5cm before each lightning to prevent any soot forming or overheating the container.
