Hand Crafted Je Tsongkhapa Sculpture Set- Gyaltsab Je, Khedrup Je
The Je Tsongkhapa Sculpture Set includes the Je Tsongkhapa and his two disciples, Gyaltsab Je and Khedrup Je, both seated below. The statue set was identically carved in our studio in Nepal with exclusive design patterns. The set was molded from a copper body, gilded with 24k genuine gold over the body and highlighted by the acrylic paint. We have depicted all three deities seated atop a moon disc lotus with a peaceful expression as they make different mudras with their hands. The artists have worked for months to carve each individual statue with precise iconographic detail patterns that are exclusively found in Nepal. You can use this set for numerous religious activities as well as placing it on your altar.
This Statue set will be the perfect gift for a practitioner like you from Nepal.

Tsongkhapa (1357–1419) is a well-known Tibetan religious philosopher. A devout monastic, Tsongkhapa took on the difficult task of locating and studying all of the Indian Buddhist classics available in Tibet in his day. In his iconic form, wearing a tall yellow hat, he is the center of the Gelugpa sect that was dominant in Tibet until the Chinese takeover in 1951, and whose de facto leader is the Dalai Lama.
Gyaltsab Je was Lama Tsongkhapa's most famous student. He oversaw the building of Gaden Monastery (established by Lama Tsongkhapa) and was named its second monk after Tsongkhapa. After Lama Tsongkhapa's death, he became the Gaden Tripa, or "holder of the Gaden Throne," the Gelug tradition's head.
Khedrup Je was a prolific author, writing fifty-eight treatises and numerous prayer books. His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, uses an essential scripture on Kalachakra as the foundation for his Kalachakra Tantra empowerments.
