by Tashi Lhunpo Monks

  • Streaming + Download

    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Please check which audio format your smart phone can use for custom Ringtones before purchasing a Tashi Ringtone.
    Many smart phone handsets are able to use MP3 files as Ringtones, although if you're an Apple user (running iOS5) you'll need the Ringtones in .m4r format to be able to experience the true path to smart phone/tablet enlightenment.
    The Apple compatible .m4r files are also included as a bonus file with each Bandcamp download as the Bandcamp chaps are very clever indeed and have no issues with freedom of choice and self- determination when it comes to audio formats.
    Whatever audio file format you opt for, please also bear in mind you’ll need to be able to transfer your downloaded file, preferably in a calm and peaceful manner, to your phone or tablet of choice via e-mail/Bluetooth/i-tunes - depending on the requirements of your device.

The sound of the Conch Shell is used to summon the gods to the prayers. It was also used in battle and was thought to release frightening destructive forces. The conch shell trumpet comes from the word ‘Dung’ meaning horn and ‘Karpo’ meaning white. The shell is said to have originated from the depths of the ocean, where it was home to an animal which was the result of the union of a dragon and a fish.
