White Tara North Fife
White Tara frame drawing. This design which takes its inspiration from a story, Buddha's Law amongst the birds also incorporating the 8 auspicious symbols was engraved into silver with White Tara within the frame. Bejewelled and Gold plated, about A4 in size. Sponsored by Ani Pema, it was offered to H.H. Karmapa on my visit to Rumtek Monastery at Losar time in 1980. It was amongst the first precious metal artefacts that have been produced here in North Fife.
