Our partners at Akara Collection have created some wonderful aids for our path to liberation. Gathered together by Kyapjé Tsiké Chokling Rinpoche, Kyapjé Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, and Phakchok Rinpoche, this boxed-set combines in a single box six methods of liberation through sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, and wearing from the profound revealed treasures of Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa.

Additionally, this Dharanī Blanket Set has been carefully selected to bring great benefit specifically to the recently deceased, consisting of a Liberation Upon Touching dharanī blanket, Liberation Upon Smelling incense powder, and a Liberation Upon Tasting pill.
