This is my second yak meditation rug. The first was the lighter gray one, which I have used daily for a long time. Now, since I liked the first so much, I got the darker brown one to take when I travel. As before, the quality of the rug is superb in material and workmanship, and the vibrant image of the yak reminds me always of Tibet. I highly recommend these rugs for travel or for anyone with limited space and a small altar.

When I saw this meditation carpet, it reminded me of my trek to Nepal in 1986, where I saw many Yaks. During certain festivals, they are decorated with flowers. They carry heavy loads and Yak pies provide fuel for fires. I watched as women collected the pies in the fields, deftly tossing them into a large sack they carried on their backs for the purpose. They never had to look anywhere but at the ground, pick up the pie, and toss it behind them. They never missed! In other words, a Yak is a valuable sentient being in this part of the world so to have the carpet now in my home further proves its benefit...the benefit to me to use it and to those countless beings that helped bring it to me. It is a wonder example of the interconnectedness of all phenomena.
Vicki, thank you for sharing your experience with us! We are so glad to hear about your connection to yaks and hope that this carpet continues to bring back fond memories and positive reminders for many years to come. Thanks so much!
I completely fell in love with this carpet as soon as I saw it on the website, and the real thing is just as nice. The yak is really adorable and helps keep me motivated to practice. :-)
Karin, thank you for your feedback! In Asia, the Yak is believed to have ancient wisdom and an understanding of higher purpose. We hope knowing that brings peace to your meditation practice. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review and thank you for supporting Himalayan artisans!
