Description

Details

A handcrafted metal kapala (skull cup) with Tibetan-style carvings on the cover and stand. It is an essential ritual object for anyone engaging in higher tantric practices such as Yamantaka, Kalachakra, Chakrasamvara or Vajrayogini. Practitioners who aspire to advance to practices such as these should also keep a kapala as part of their ritual set for auspicious reasons.

Traditionally fashioned from a human skull, the kapala symbolises cutting through the identification with our body and its endless wants and needs by remembering death – impermanence. It can be seen in the iconography of many tantric deities and is usually held in the left "wisdom" hand at the level of the heart.

During tantric rituals, negative qualities such as hatred and greed are ‘cooked’ in the kapala, thus transforming them into nectar. This nectar in turn is offered to sentient beings as all the food, medicine and worldly and spiritual help they need.

The kapala is most commonly used as a vessel for the practitioner's 'inner offering', made from either alcohol or black tea, and can also be used to hold ritual cakes and other tantric offerings.
