Contributions to the statue project are deeply appreciated.
Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche has set forth the causes and conditions to create precious Guru Rinpoche statues and place them around the globe with the heartfelt aspiration to dispel negativity and create opportunities for universal peace.
We know the power of Guru Rinpoche’s blessings; by actively participating in the creation and propagation of Padmasambhava images we can generate vast merit and bring benefit to all that come in contact with the Guru’s blessing.
Khen Rinpoche is providing a wonderful opportunity for us to make this kind of connection on a global level with the hope that this project can swiftly remove obstacles and allow harmony to prevail.
Each statue is a replica (made from a mold) of originals sculpted by Bhutanese artists. Once the statues are completed, they ship from India to auspicious locations around the world and to sites chosen by sponsors.
The brass rupas are created from two different size molds — the large statue is approximately 13′ and the smaller statue measures at about 4′ tall. The base cost of the large statue is $10,000 (before shipping). The 4′ statue is $4000 (price includes printed mantra necessary for packing the statue and shipping from India to the US).
The statues are brass, Padmasambhava on Pema (Lotus). They do not include materials for throne. You may choose to have the statues painted and / or gold leafed.
