Tibetan Khatas

The khata symbolizes purity, compassion and very auspicious and are worn or presented with incense at many ceremonial occasions, including births, weddings, funerals, graduations and the arrival or departure of guests. It is usually made of silk. Tibetan khatas are usually white symbolising the pure heart of the giver, though it is quite common to find yellow-gold khata and other color khata as well.
