A beautiful gold plated statue of Guru Rinpoche sitting 15.5 inches. Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, helped to establish the Dharma in Tibet in the eighth century by constructing Samye Monastary, the first Buddhist monastary in Tibet. He and his consort, Yeshe Tsogyal, are considered the heart essence of the Dzogchen teachings and the source of the Nyingma school's terma tradition. Every square inch of this statue is absolutely exquisite. The gold-plating gives the entire statue a warmth which seems to glow when light touches it. Statues like this are one of a kind. This is a true masterpiece, and a powerful support to inspire your Dharma practice. May all beings benefit!
It is said that just to see an image of Guru Rinpoche has great benefit for one's own path of awakening, for it plants a seed in one's mind stream of future accomplishment.
