Mahakala Bernagchen | The Black Cloak | Gold Plated Handcrafted Statue



Mahakala Bernagchen, The Black Cloak Handcrafted Statue

Mahakala Bernagchen, also The Black Cloak, is the personal guardian of the Karmapas, the leaders of the Karma Kagyu lineage. The handcrafted statue shows him with two arms. He holds his signature chopper in his right hand, which symbolizes the slashing of opposing forces and emotions. He also has a skull cup in the other hand, usually brimming with blood. The technique was established in the Karma Kagyu tradition by the 2nd Karmapa, Karma Pakshi (1206-1283 CE). The method comes from the Nyingma lineage's Revealed Treasure or Terma tradition. 

Our Mahakala statue is iconographically accurate and has all the right features for your Vajrayana practices.
