Copper Butter Lamp

  • Light is an important part of any Tibetan altar.
  • In Buddhist practices, each lamp offering celebrates the Buddha's enlightenment and thus is associated with great good fortune. 
  • Traditionally the lamp is filled with oil or butter and a wick (or several wicks) and would be kept burning all day. 

For safety and convenience, DharmaShop founder, Sander Cohen often likes to use a tea light in his butter lamp.  The metal of the lamp adds a soft glow to your altar.  This copper butter lamp is handcrafted in Nepal in the traditional manner.

Measures approximately 3.5 inches tall.
