Tibetan Buddhist Gau Box from Nepal (Portable Shrine)

Tibetan Buddhist Gau Box from Nepal (Portable Shrine)

Tibetan Buddhist Gau Box from Nepal (Portable Shrine)

The concept of the gau originates from and is largely restricted to Tibetan Buddhism itself. Basically a portable shrine designed for the devotee to wear on one's crossbelt or even as a locket, Tibetan gaus are characterised by richly ornamental metalwork. This glimmering copper gau has been handpicked from the produce of obscure artisans in Nepal for its signature beauty and finish. The ample florals surrounding the frontal opening are symbolic of the paradise realm of the deity you choose to house within (preferably your ishtadeva); while the faunal motifs such as snow lions, deers, birds, and snails are each pregnant with meaning drawn from traditional Tibetan art. Note the winged Kirtimukha atop the opening of the gau. It is the norm that the deity in question is wrapped in silks and placed within the view offered by the shrine. One may place the gau in an altar when not travelling.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
