In this workshop we will guide students through the process of applying gold leaf to a small Buddha statue called a tsatsa.

The creation of, as well as the offering of paint/ gold to sacred objects such as tsatsas, statues, and stupas, is a practice that is said to result in great merit and positive energy for the practitioner as well as the recipient.
