Traditionally Hand Carved Semi-Wrathful Guru Rinpoche
We have exquisitely hand-carved the statue of Semi-Wrathful Guru Rinpoche in traditional Himalayan style with a pure copper body coating the statue in 24k genuine gold and finely painting the sculpture with acrylic paint, highlighting the features of the statue. The deity is covered in monastic robes and body ornament, while he is seated with both legs crossed upon a moon disc lotus in meditation. He holds a vajra in his right hand while a vase in his left, his tantric staff (khatvanga) surmounted with a trident in the fold of his arm resting upon his shoulder. This magnificent statue of the Guru Rinpoche will be a wonderful present to a practitioner like you.

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.
