Description

Details

Originating from Tibet and Mongolia, khatas or khatags are ceremonial scarves that represent purity, respect, auspiciousness and good wishes. They are the most common Tibetan gift and are widely used in a variety of situations.

  • Offered to lamas and spiritual teachers to request blessings

  • Offered to Buddha statues, Dharma texts and stupas to pay homage

  • Symbolically used during pujas, rituals, when making offerings and when handling holy objects

  • Offered to elders as a mark of respect

  • Offered to family and friends as gifts, thanks and goodwill

  • Offered during festive occasions, celebrations, weddings, births and funerals

  • Offered to guests as a gesture of welcome or farewell

Khatas come in five main colours, each with its own symbolism.

  • White represents purity, auspiciousness, sincerity and kindness. White khatas are the most popular colour and are suitable for all occasions.

  • Yellow represents increase and growth. Yellow khatas are typically offered to high lamas, spiritual teachers, and to wealth deities such as Dzambala and Namtose.

  • Red represents control and wrath as well as love and compassion. Red khatas are often offered to wrathful deities and Dharma protectors.

  • Green represents the swift fulfilment of wishes. Green khatas typically symbolise a wish for peace and protection from harm.

  • Blue represents knowledge and wisdom. Blue khatas are particularly popular in Mongolia, as they are said to represent the sky.

On very special occasions or when meeting a highly attained spiritual being, khatas in all five colours are offered at the same time.

When a khata is offered to a lama, the lama usually accepts the khata then places it around our neck as a blessing. This khata can be kept as a blessed object, inserted into statues & stupas, or placed above the door or entrance to the home for protection.
