    Hashshashin 'Supreme Heruka' tee. Comes with a free download of our new release, 'nihsahshsaH (adj.)'.

    Unisex shirts printed on AS Colour Staple Tees. Regular fit. Crew neck. Mid-weight, 180 GSM. 100% combed cotton (marles 15% polyester).

    Ladies tees printed on AS Colour Women's Mali Tee. Regular fit. Scoop neck, capped sleeves, curved tails. Light weight, 150 GSM. 100% combed cotton (marles 15% polyester).

    This image is of the Heruka, a group of wrathful deities in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. These gods were worshipped in pre-Buddhist Tibet, in the regional folk animism and the shamanic Bön traditions.

    When Padmasambhava brought Buddhism to Tibet, he was confronted by these deities. He subdued the gods with wisdom and compassion. They became enlightened and pledged allegiance to the Buddha. They are now guardians of esoteric Buddhism, and are the object of tantric visualisation meditations.

    We use this image with respect.

about

The Sydney trio Hashshashin blend meditative eastern sounds with drone, prog and psychedelia.

nihsahshsaH is inspired by the mystics of past and present, who fled their homes and walked out into the desert in search of something to soothe the roar of their broken minds.

The sounds bring to mind scorched desert sands, the sweet scent of hashish, and the infinite blue of the sheltering sky. 

For fans of Masada, Secret Chiefs 3, Zu, Ssahha, Naadistan and who knows what else.

about

Hashshashin Sydney, Australia

“(Hashshashin’s) music is powerful and muscular and ranges from full on psychedelic rock-outs to fully hypnotising drone.

Often ragged and cathartic, this is, in its own way, soul music, music that taps into a primal, tribal, part of our consciousness that we, in our too comfortable Western civilisation, rarely draw from.”
