Potala Painters, and Prayer Wheel Makers

I know I will regret this... they will become so famous and sought-after that I won't be able to afford them... but here goes anyway, because these fellows deserve all the help they can get.

If you are in the United States, looking around for someone to paint your temple, paint your statues, help with elaborate tormas, or simply paint your house, I suggest you visit Potala Painters and see what they can do for you.

Once you get the place painted, you'll need at least one serious prayer wheel. The quickest way to accomplish that is to (1) whip out the letter of credit, and (2) contact Shanker Tamraker, in Nepal.

(Note to our many readers in Bhutan: send in the names of some Bhutanese suppliers, won't you? The best Bhutanese shop in the 'States could use some help fending off the Nepali competition.)
