Khatas are silk cloths used in many Buddhist traditions to show great respect, love and friendship to the people we treasure. Typically they are woven with designs of the 8 auspicious signs representing our wishes and the enlightened qualities of the Buddhas. Khatas come in many different colours (white, yellow, red, green, blue) and their use originates from many countries including Tibet, Mongolia and Nepal.

Khatas can be offered to the Buddhas and to our Gurus, Lamas, parents and friends. Prior to offering a khata, we may make aspirational prayers while holding the khata up to our forehead. When the khata is offered, it carries all our prayers and good wishes to the other person.
