Brass Guru Padmasambhava Statue 2.8"|
This is a beautiful Finely Carved Guru Padmasambhava statue made of brass. Guru Padmasambhava is also known as Guru Rinpoche.
Padmasambhava was the most powerful apostle of Tantricism and is a very eminent saint in the spiritual lineage of the Nyingmapa order of Tibetan Buddhism of which he was the founder. He was born out of a lotus flower (Padma), in Lake Dhankasha in Udiayana, an ancient city of India. He received great notoriety as a powerful exorcist and was invited by King Trisong Detsen in ca. 715 to come to Tibet to subdue the local spirits obstructing the introduction of Buddhism. Using Phur-Pa (ceremonial "tent-stake") rituals, Padmasambhava convinced the local spirits to become protectors of the Dharma (Dharmapalas). He lived in Tibet for 50 years.
