Snow Lion Canada

Posted by: Buddha Dude On: April 13, 2008

The store was founded in 1978 under the name 'Tibetan Arts and Crafts' mainly to support the Tibetan refugees through making their handicrafts available in Toronto. In 1980, the name was changed to the now 'Snow Lion'. we offer meditation supplies (zafu cushions and zabuton mats made on premise), spiritual essentials, books, statues and ritual items. Snow Lion services the expanding spiritual/Dharma communities and those searching for a path to inner peace. The store is a haven of tranquility and peace that is felt by all those entering through her doors.

Crystal Journey With Quartz Crystal Bowls and Paiste Gongs

Posted by: Buddha Dude On: December 22, 2008

A special musical performance to take the listener on a magical journey through our solar system with singing quartz crystal bowls, Paiste Planet gongs and Vibraphone.

This is one of the most incredible concerts we have ever been too! You do not listen with your ears; you feel it with your whole mind and body. The two, approximately, one hour sets, were some of the best sense meditations we have experienced. Both Butterfly and I highly recommend you attend any of David’s performances, or just go to his website and either stream his music or support him and buy a CD or two (we have three of his CDs now).

Butterfly and I found this small store in Toronto when we took the family to the ROM; this store is absolutely fantastic and we could have spent hours in there (and a ton of money too, LOL). They are a small family run business and at this time they do not have a web site so we are posting their street address and phone number instead. If you are in the area, we highly recommend you drop by.
