Emily McNutt very kindly documented the stages of making Tsa Tsas for us.
KTD Protector Lama Thendup demonstrates the process while making tsa tsas to be placed in the eight small KTD small stupas.
The Process of Making Tsa Tsas for the Stupas
Tsa tsa assembly line in full swing!
The first step: make the mix
Next: pour the mix into molds
Then carefully place rolled texts inside each mold
The tea tsas are ready to take out
Once removed from the mold, smooth out the rough edges on each tsa tsa
Our fresh new tsa tsas are ready to paint!
