A lovely 3 inch statue of the Buddha of our times. Guru Rinpoche firmly established the Dharma in Tibet so that future generations like ourselves can connect with this potent medicine. To show that he has accomplished his own welfare and is constantly ready to benefit others, he is seated in the graceful posture of royal poise. 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. This statue can be opened for consecration. It would also make a perfect gift, as it comes in a nice saffron colored box with a magnetic closure. A statue of a Buddha is a constant reminder of the Buddha within.
