In the Buddhist tradition, scriptures are precious, even more so than statues. Therefore, a Buddhist pecha, or text, is never placed directly on the floor, stepped over, or left in a place where someone sits. Instead, it is carefully wrapped with a protective fabric, either simple red or yellow cotton or rayon cloth or with beautiful silk brocade.
These authentic silk wrap envelopes are essential for properly organizing, transporting, and storing your collection of texts, protecting them from the mishaps of accidental spills, lost pages, humidity damage, and insects. The wrappers are available in a variety of colours, designs, and sizes to compliment your practice space.
With careful treatment, ensure that you place your text face-up inside the envelope and not face-down.
