Snow Lion Retail is a supplier of merchandise focused on Eastern philosophies and related spiritual practices. We also stock a range of locally manufactured body treats, candles, gifts, and jewellery.

Our story

Established in 2006 at the Lam Rim Buddhist Centre in Johannesburg, Snow Lion had a modest start, trading once a week from our shop located there.  Audrey, our first employee and now an expert on everything Snow Lion, moved up the ranks and was rewarded with shares in the business.


Snow Lion Retail imports quality products including Tibetan prayer flags, Buddhist statues, incense, incense burners, meditation products, practise items, malas and more from Nepal and India. 
We were on the verge of adding California to our supply chain when our plans were thwarted by the arrival of Covid 19. 

Nonetheless, this has resulted in a positive outcome for local manufacturers and crafts people who are now increasing our offerings and creating much needed jobs.

We are primarily an online store but customers are welcome to visit our premises in Auckland Park, Johannesburg, by appointment.

Businesses interested in stocking our imported products are welcome to visit our wholesale website www.slwsa.co.za. Alternately, email  admin@nullslwsa.co.za for details of a registered stockist in your area..

We look forward to welcoming you.
