"Every time you see Buddha in different rooms (as holy objects) you get all this incredible benefit for the mind; the more holy objects you have...you get that much more benefit."

- Lama Zopa Rinpoche

One of the most beautiful and meaningful ways to place tsa tsas is to use them to create a Buddha Wall, either in your home or in a Dharma center. Using the images in this way ensures that they will be respected, because they are placed in a high, clean location where others can view them. They thus become both stunning works of art that can be appreciated by all, and objects of veneration that can benefit the viewer by creating positive imprints - the seed of enlightenment - on his or her mind.

Tsa tsas can easily be mounted on wall surfaces with the use of strong mounting pads or other adhesives. In general, square or rectangular tiles are used to make Buddha walls, as they can be laid out in a grid pattern and fit neatly together. However, almost any image could be used, as tsa tsas have flat backs that make them suitable for mounting.

If you have a commitment to make many hundreds of tsa tsas, we suggest that you use some of the most perfect images in this way. Or, if you would like to create a Buddha Wall for your home or Dharma center but don't have a tsa tsa practice, you may order the tsa tsas from us. Tsa tsas made with pigment (colored tsa tsas) are suitable for interior use, while those made of metal (copper, brass, aluminum or bronze) can be placed outdoors without any deterioration due to the elements.

Images suitable for making Buddha walls include our 1000-armed Chenrezig plaque, Green Tara plaque and the 49 Medicine Buddha tile. These can all be seen in our Tsa Tsa Catalog. Other images in the catalog that can be made as 4" x 4" square tiles are: Medicine Buddha, Lama Tsong Khapa, Vajrayogini, Long life deities, Vajrasattva with consort, and Hayagriva. We also have a single Akshobya tile and a 20-Buddha Akshobya tile not shown in the catalog. Please contact us for prices.

Below are photos of the Buddha Walls that have been created in the past by the Tsa Tsa Studio (when it was the Tsa Tsa Factory/A Project of Tse Chen Ling). If you have any questions about how to create your own Buddha Wall, please do not hesitate to contact us.
