Torma are figures for offering on your shrine which in Tibet, Nepal, India and elsewhere in Asia are hand made from flour and butter. Our torma figures are made from a poly-resin which has been hand crafted, then hand painted.
They are placed on the shrin as a gift of generosity to the energy of deity in one's own mind. used in tantric rituals or as offerings in Tibetan Buddhism. They may be dyed in different colors, often with white or red for the m ain body of the torma.
The origin of the word in Sanskrit is Balingta, and in Tibetan language they are called 'Tor-ma.'
