A lovely copper and silver statue of Guru Rinpoche standing 3.75 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. The detail in the etching work on this piece is phenomenal. This statue has a presence all on it's own. May all beings benefit!
This statue can be opened for consecration.
