Katha Khanha (Full Version)

Performing Khanha is essential whenever a person brings a consecrated amulet/bucha home for the first time. It serves as a respectful request for the blessings of the forces of the Universe, and the kindness of Buddhists teachers, saints and deities. The process may be used to perform simultaneous Khanha for multiple amulets.
