Buddhist workshop Natsog Dorje
We are an artisan a sculpture studio and foundry workshop dedicated to develop entirely authentic ritual objects and images to support the Vajrayana Secret Mantra practices. We also produce jewellery and many more artistic and ritual objects from Tibetan ancient culture.
Nowadays, the tradition of the Tibetan Buddhism is widely spread throughout the world beyond their countries of origin, and has many teachers and followers even in the western countries. The heart of the Tibetan tradition is the teachings of the Vajrayana Secret Mantra. Here, art is closely related with the practice of this path. Thus, for example, is often required to practice various elaborated ritual images and objects that maths precisely the requirements of the tradition, each item having a profound symbolism with the aim of stablishing a good relationship between the internal and external dimensions.
Everything must be technically well done. And equally important, the creation and manufacturing process must be accompanied by specific practices, recitation of mantras, etc. Actually is very difficult to find the team that meets best technical requirements for creation of images and ritual objects as well as having the appropriate attitude and deep knowledge of what and how to do.
The Buddhist workshop Natsog Dorje arose from the desire to fulfil the complete requirements. We are a group of old Dharma practitioners: qualified painters, sculptors and jewellers. For several years, with the blessings and guidance of many Tibetan teachers, we developed and created a variety of unique items on demand.
Our main sources of mentors and blessings are great teachers as Terchen Kyabje Namkha Drime Rabjam Rinpoche, Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche and Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche.
Among the Tibetan and Bhutanese teachers for whom we have worked, additionally to those abovementioned, we would highlight Shiva Rinpoche, Garchen Rinpoche, Lama Karma Phuntsok, Namkhai Norbu Rincpoche and many others.
