Robes and Alms bowl

Postby socoguy78 » Sat Oct 13, 2012 5:55 pm

Dhamma Greetings,
Does anyone know where a person can buy buddhist robes, burmese prefered, and alms bowl on the internet? I can't seem to find a thread with this in it or any websites...
Much Metta,
Zach

Maybe you could ask this eBay seller: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Full- ... 3a78e61935

I think the answer then is to get them sent from asia, 5' 2" is pretty average there and it will be cheaper than sourcing them from ebay i'd think.

The eBay seller is in Thailand and has good feedback. If you were to send them a message explaining what you want they may be able to source it for you.

Contact Jeff at Buddha for You in San Diego. He's an experienced practitioner, and has one of the best true Buddhist shops I've seen, and carries robes, bowls, statues, and many items from Asia. I feel confident he can source whatever you may need. http://buddha-for-you.com/

If you get a shiny new stainless steel bowl from www.tudong.com then you will need to fire it or "bake" it:
