For most Himalayan Buddhists, Guru Rinpoche is the second Buddha, the Buddha of all enlightenment forms and teachings, with a focus on the tantras. Tantra teaches us to first see our teachers as Guru Rinpoche, just as the Great Way leads us to see and name our enlightened nature as Buddha-nature. Then we see everything through the eyes of Guru Rinpoche, right down to our atoms, all beings equally, and every scrap of every blade of grass, every grain of sand. Finally, when we recognize our natural, timeless awareness, we recognize Guru Rinpoche.
King Trisong Detsen, the monarch, oversaw Buddhism's official adoption as Tibet's national religion and established its royalty. He is portrayed seated with his right leg outstretched than his left. His right hand is resting on the knee, pointing down bhumisparsha posture, and his left hand is holding the dharma wheel, wearing a majestic robe. His headdress is magnificently crafted with stone and corals.
Shantarakshita is dressed modestly and wearing a pointed hat covering both ears, sat in Vajrasana position with a slight grin and pleasant look. His left-hand clutches a book, while his right hand is in Abhaya mudra.
