Finely Hand-Carved Padmasambhava Guru Rinpoche Sculpture
The Padmasambhava Guru Rinpoche statue was expertly hand-carved in the traditional Himalayan style by Vajrayana craftsmen from the Kathmandu Valley. Carved out of copper, the statue was gilded in genuine 24K gold for the sheen and highlighted with acrylic colors. Wearing his signature lotus hat, the precious guru gloriously sits atop a moon disc lotus seat, a symbol of spiritual purity. He can be seen holding a vajra in his left hand and a skull vase with a jar of immortality on his left. In the arc of his left hand, he holds the Khatvanga trident, his celestial ally of bliss and emptiness.
The statue is perfect for any devotee like yourself and can be used for various Buddhist rituals and activities like 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.
