What is a Chod Drum Damaru?
The Chod Drum Damaru is the very central instrument of Chod, a ritual Tibetan practice. The word Chod literally means "cutting through". It cuts through various hindrances and obstacles normally done through means of powerful rituals. It becomes a channel that links us to the essential source, which is beyond even name and form. The Chod Damaru is a very unique instrument that has symbolic meaning to each of the parts that it contains. 

The Chod Damaru is made from sallow wood (European Willow) from which the shell of the Damaru is made. The Chod Damaru is made in specific dimension, having specific ratio in both diameter and depth. It is said that if the Damaru is made correctly then, it gains various extraordinary properties. Once the Damaru is made it is hand painted to give its authentic look.

The drum of the Damaru is made of Goat or Sheep skin that is very durable and is hand painted. The drums of the Damaru are put in to place; white conch shells are then added in the shape of a ring around the strap of the collar for better support to handle the Damaru. The Damaru is then encased in a special cases that are made of silk or wool that protect the Damaru from moisture and various other damage that also helps for easy transport of it.

Beautiful, sounds good drum

I am very happy with the drum - it is beautiful, and sounds loud! I was a bit disappointed with the cover... which is not as red as in the picture (lots of yellow edging). Also, the flap on the case is very bent. Happy to support the women artists.

Tibetan Ritual Chod Drum Damaru

Yes-I do recommend this product. The Chod Drum-Damaru & Case are very beautiful-have high quality materials and excellent craftsmanship. Looking forward to using it-as I am waiting for our next Chod practice. NepaCrafts was highly recommended to me-by a fellow Buddhist practitioner. I will definitely recommend NepaCrafts to other Buddhist practitioners.

Incredible Drum

This drum is extremely high quality. I can't recommend it any more. The case is as beautiful as the drum itself.
