Our label is inspired by a mural we saw while traveling in Tibet in 1998. After a long journey by four-wheel drive vehicle we arrived at Tsurphu Monastery, then the home of the Karmapa, who has since joined the Dalai Lama in exile in India. It was a wild and wonderful site, surrounded by high peaks and hanging glaciers. When we inquired about a painting of a powerful mountain scene, we were told it depicted the Diamond Mountains featured in the Diamond Sutra, one of the Buddhist scriptures. San Francisco Illustrator John Mattos produced the artwork for our label from a photo of the painting.
