Handmade Traditional Idol of Empowerment Guru Rinpoche Statue
Guru Rinpoche also known as Padmasambhava was one of the highly revered Tantric Master and his empowerment dispels all negativities and violence, freeing all beings from their troubles and disturbances. He is shown sitting on a lotus seat with a vase in his left hand, a vajra in his right, and a trident on his left arm. His wrathful expression is accentuated by acrylic paintings. We made the figurine out of copper and then gilded it with real 24-karat gold. The intricate designs on the lotus hat, robe, and lotus seat were hand-carved with a hammer and various chisels.

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.
