Thogchag Tibetan amulet. * The name of the Thogchag amulets litteraly mean "sky-iron" because in the far past some of the original Thogchag amulets were made of meteoritic iron. * Nowaday the Thogchag are amulets made of metal (mostly bronze and iron), made by some special sacred metal workers, and sometime later blessed by Lama. * Thogchag amulets can have various shapes :
- Ritual items (Dorje, Phurba, Melong...) - Tantric deity (Chana Dorje, Garuda, Citipati) - Mantra plates & so on... * Tibetan see Thogchag as powerfull protective amulets and wear them as pendants, or sometime also add them to their Mala. * To learn more about Thogchag and see some images of old Thogchag amulets, please click here.
