Ratna Shop aims to provide Gomde visitors with the next best experience to exploring, first-hand, the exotic markets tucked away in the high Himalayas.
Based on expert advice from a few senior monks and high Lamas of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery, we are able to fulfil our commitment to supply the Dharma community, both near and far, with authentic meditation and practice materials, traditional Buddhist ritual instruments, and a variety of Buddhist fine arts crafted by skilled artisans of Nepal, Tibet, India, and elsewhere.
We vow to remain a reliable source of high quality goods for the benefit of your personal practice, but how does your purchase from Ratna Shop truly benefit others? All funds serve to help offset the ongoing expense of running Gomde, itself, help sustain the monks and nuns of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery and Nagi Gompa Nunnery, and enable us to maintain good relations with the Himalayan suppliers. Moreover, in this way, your purchase directly supports the livelihood of the local craftsmen and shopkeepers of the Himalayan region, many of whom are Tibetans living in exile.
