The Story

 

Karla Refoxo, the creator of Tulku, is a painter, sculptor and meditator. She travels regularly to Nepal where she works with Newar master craftsmen to broaden her knowledge and connection with the source of her inspiration. As part of the ancient lineage of artists whose path in Life is to create sacred objects and share them with the world, Karla’s intention with Tulku is to work with other such artists to provide people with sacred art to wear.

Blessings

Tulku jewelry is caringly hand-crafted with consciousness by several loving hands, hearts, and souls to awaken its powerful quality. In keeping with Karla’s intention to bring the greatest blessings, support and peace to the people who wear Tulku, each amulet is carved in repousse by master artist Rajendra Bajracharya—a 17th generation Buddhist priest; then blessed by a Nepalese holy woman known as Mata. These amulets are imbued with the power inherent in traditions where there is no separation between pure spirituality and the act of creation. Through wearing these amulets, that power supports, inspires, and protects us on our own particular Paths in Life.

Tulku “the form body of a Buddha”

In the Tibetan tradition, a tulku is the recognized reincarnation of a past Buddhist master. The new incarnation takes rebirth to bring blessings and benefit to all sentient beings. Tulku jewels—like the name they embody—represent the rebirth of spirit into a new form. They are tools to remind us of our divine nature which is unbounded by time or space.

 

A percentage of the profits from TULKU sales are given to Mata and to One H.E.A.R.T.
The Mission of One H.E.A.R.T. is to save the lives of Tibetan women and children, one birth at a time.

Proceeds from some of the amulets also go to the BLUE DEER CENTER. The Blue Deer Center is a sacred place and a sacred mission to make the teachings and practices of the ancestors available today.

TULKU donates custom amulets and a percentage of all proceeds towards the following organizations:

One Heart Worldwide
One Heart World-Wide has developed an unique model to prevent the deaths of mothers and their infants in remote rural areas of the world. Simply put, we surround each mother and infants with a “Network of Safety” to insure that they will survive pregnancy, childbirth and the first months of life.

Blue Deer Center
The Blue Deer Center provides an important setting for teachings and practices that promote balanced relationship with the natural world. We particularly welcome ancestral approaches to healing, ritual, and retreat. The Center's origins are rooted in the Huichol shamanic tradition and our connection to the universal and sacred spirit of fire.
