Practice Supplies:

A mala is an essential tool for a practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism. A bodhi seed mala is widely recommended since it is appropriate for virtually any practice. In Calgary, you can visit Tibetan Trom in Eau Claire Market in the city’s downtown, to purchase a mala. The largest selection of mala available online can be found at Garuda Trading and it usually takes about a week and a half to two weeks for their shipments to reach Calgary from the UK.

If you order a mala from outside Canada and you re charged import duties by Canada Revenue Agency, claim the amount back. A mala isn’t jewelry, it is a religious item and should be import duty exempt.

If you need a meditation cushion at home, the ones at Machig Ling in Calgary were purchased from triplegem.ca and are reasonably priced.

But after this experience, she would eat anything, except meat, without consideration of good or bad, even from the hands of lepers and beggars – a sign that she had severed the attachment to food. ~ Machik’s Complete Explanation: Clarifying the Meaning of Chöd.
