Traditionally Hand Carved Statue of Tsongkhapa with Disciples
We have meticulously hand-crafted the statue of Tsongkhapa with disciples in a traditional Himalayan Art of Nepal. We are the Kathmandu Valley artist whose artisan has passed from generation to generation, reflecting Buddhism. Beneath the Tsongkhapa, we have portrayed the statue of his two disciples, Gyaltsab Je and Khedrup Je on the left and right sides, respectively. We have exquisitely designed the robes and crafted them using the materials such as 24k gold and pure copper body. In many Buddhist rituals and meditation practices, you can use all the deities depicted atop a moon disc lotus seat with tranquil expressions. This Tibetan art will be a tremendous gift from Nepal to a practitioner like you.

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.
