Guru Padmasambhawa Statue
Handcrafted Copper Guru Padmasambhawa Statue finished with Gold plating and semi-precious stones.
Padmasambhava, the 'lotus born' also known as 'Guru Rinpoche', was an 8th-century Buddhist master. He introduced Tantric Buddhism to Tibet. Padmasambhawa is revered throughout the Himalayas as the second Buddha.
Guru Padmasambhava can be seen in his most well known representation. His eyes are open in a piercing gaze; his face is wrathful and smiling, blazing magnificently with mysterious power. He cradles a khatvanga in his left arm, representing his consort Mandarava, who arouses realization of emptiness. His khatvanga is crowned with three severed heads and a trident, symbolizing Guru Padmasambhava's liberation from the three kayas of desire, form and formlessness.
