Tara of the Autumn Moon Silk Mask
Tārā is an ancient goddess and female Buddha representing the eternal force that fuels all life and vows to rescue all living beings who call on her for help. There are 21 forms of Tārā, each emanating a color of the spectrum. Green and white (her most popular forms) radiate across this silk mask, with touches of her saffron gold, ocean blue, and twilight black emanations.
We are proud to offer the Tārā of the Autumn Moon silk mask as a debut colorway in our KARMA COLLECTION, an exclusive, limited-run selection of silk masks created in collaboration with Khensur Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan, retired abbot of the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery. Together, we designed these masks as a unique offering to encourage your support for the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery.
The Tara silk mask is a meaningful keepsake. At Tashi Lhunpo, Tārā prayers are conducted daily at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to end the pandemic and heal the planet. There are only ten masks in the Tara of the autumn Moon colorway. Rinpoche personally blessed each mask and advised us on the design. The masks are available to the first ten people who donate $200 or more to the monastery on Wednesday, December 16th. To make your donation and claim your gift, (DONATE NOW LINK)
SRS is honored to help Khensur Rinpoche garner support for his temple. Tashi Lhunpo is one of the oldest, most prestigious Tibetan monasteries, forced into exile in India, where it slowly rebuilds itself and serves the refugee community.
If you've gotten here only to discover it's already gone, we encourage you to get on our list to be alerted when we release new Karma Collection designs.
ABOUT OUR MASKS
Each silk mask is one of a kind. Our fabric is hand dyed by artist Laura Kozaitis who fuses traditional and modern dying techniques to achieve her signature designs. Your mask was sewn in Queens, NY by a small group of women; many of whom are mothers that have been hard hit by the recent pandemic. Collaborating with Silk Road Spaceship provided them the opportunity for independent enterprise through fair wages, as well as the safety and flexibility to work from home.
Silk Road Spaceship masks ship first class mail. Expedited shipping available for an additional charge.
Silk Road Spaceship masks are final sale and nonreturnable for health and safety concerns. For help with customizing the fit of your mask, please click here.
