Presenting Khada is a kind of very common courtesy. Khada is a long piece of silk used as a greeting gift. In Tibet, it is a custom to present Khada to the guests in the occasion of wedding and funeral. It is also common when people visit senior people, worship Buddha statues, and bid farewell to guests.

Tibetan CustomsPresenting Khada is to show purity, loyalty, faithfulness and respect to the receivers.

It is said that only after people present Khada in a monastery, can they pay homage to the Buddha statues. They are free to visit the different halls. Before departure, they will leave a Khada beside their seats to indicate that even though they have left, but their hearts are still there.

Khada is made of raw silk or silk and it is loosely weaved. Khadas have different kinds of auspicious patterns, such as lotus, bottle, umbrellas and conch. The material of Khada varies in quality. But people don’t care much about it only if Khada can expresses good wishes. Khada is of different lengths, some as long as 3 or 4 meters, some as short as half a meter. Khada is normally white because Tibetan people believe white symbolizes purity and luck. However, there is a kind of Khada with five colors on, blue, white, yellow, green and red, respectively indicating sky, cloud, land, river and the God in charge of Buddha dharma. Five-colored Khada is very valued gift which can be given to the Buddha statues or intimate relatives. According to the Buddhism teachings, five-colored Khada is the clothe of Buddha. Therefore, five-colored Khada can only be presented in some special occasions.
