Meet a Balinese Hindu BRAHMAN and have your PERSONAL, UNIQUE MYSTIC TALISMAN drawn & carved for your INTENTIONS to be manifested.
This MYSTIC CARVER belongs to the highest caste lineage of the Brahman. For generations his family has lived in this village near UBUD: they have drawn, chiseled and carved MYSTIC FIGURES in Buffalo bone – as well as mystic YANTRAS, symbols of cosmic truth, on fabric canvas.
Such TALISMANS are based on ancient Hindu wisdom, meant to protect people and places, to attract abundance & prosperity, to allow expansion of psychic forces.
Our BRAHMAN has a great knowledge of the powerful Balinese mystic and esoteric tradition of the TALISMANS.
The items are done during the AUSPICIOUS days of the Balinese calendar.
