Classic Gold Gilded Guru Rinpoche for Meditation and Ritual
This Guru Rinpoche statue was painstakingly hand-carved in our studio. The Lotus-Born is portrayed as having a semi-wrathful countenance. He sits majestically on a moon disk lotus seat with his left foot extended forward and carrying a vase of the skull of immortality in his right hand. In the arc of his right hand, he is also carrying the Khatvanga trident, his celestial ally of bliss and emptiness. He can be seen holding a vajra, or a ritual item, in his left hand. This statue is made up of oxidized copper and partially gilded in gold and silver, giving it its excellent look. The statue is full of intricate patterns and motifs that our artists carved out over several months and filled with precious gemstones.
This piece is an excellent souvenir for any devotee like yourself and can be used in your daily practices and activities of meditation and yoga.

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.
