The Kapala set is traditionally used in both Vajrayana (Tantric) Buddhism but also Tantric Hindu practice. The word kapala has its origins in Sanskrit and it was subsequently adopted in Tibet. Indeed, kapala translates as human “skull” in English and it was traditionally created from a human cranium. Our white metal kapala set features traditional design and is well suited for Tibetan Buddhist rituals or also home decor.

Our white metal kapala set is used in Tantric rituals to appease the fierce protector deities. The wrathful deities are commonly depicted carrying a kapala in Tibetan thangka paintings and sculptures. Additionally, kapalas are used in Tantric rituals to hold sanctified red wine or sometimes human blood. The offering is given to the fierce Tantric deity by placing it on the altar. It can also be consumed by the lama and his Heart Family as part of a Vajrayana empowerment ceremony.

Our kapala set was hand crafted in Nepal by the same skilled artisans who have been supplying the Tibetan monasteries for centuries. As a result, when you purchase one of our beautiful kapala sets you can rest assured you have procured a monastic quality Tibetan ritual item. The kapalas were hand crafted using the traditional lost wax sculpting method. The base material is white metal and the set has been engraved in intricate detail.

    Just received my kapala set and could not be happier. Very good quality and just like the photos. I’d bought a set in Boudha twenty plus years ago but these are a lot better. Service was also excellent. Very responsive and the shipping was quick. I like that shipping is included in the price as you know up front what the total cost will be.
