Traditional Born From A Lotus Flower Guru Rinpoche Statue
We are the Kathmandu valley artists that meticulously handcrafted the Born From A Lotus Flower Guru Rinpoche Statue in the traditional Himalayan Art style. He is depicted sitting on a lotus seat, holding a vase in his left hand, a vajra in his right, and a trident on his left arm while having an eye-piercing gaze. The figurine was molded using copper and afterward gilded with real 24-karat gold. The beautiful design patterns on the robe were hand carved. We worked diligently on this for months in our studio. The statue is embellished with valuable gemstones, corals, and turquoise. These are placed on a lotus hat, robe, and lotus seat. This statue weighs about 10.49kg.
This Lotus Born Master has accurate traditional iconography and fine details.

For most Himalayan Buddhists, Guru Rinpoche is the second Buddha, the Buddha of all forms and teachings of enlightenment, focusing on the tantras. Tantra teaches us to initially see our instructors as Guru Rinpoche, just as the Great Way leads us to see our enlightened nature and name it buddha-nature. Then we view everything as Guru Rinpoche, down to the atoms of our bodies, all beings equally, and every scrap of every blade of grass, every grain of sand. Finally, it is Guru Rinpoche who we realize when we recognize our natural, timeless awareness.
