This is a handcrafted Guru Padmasambhava statue made of copper. This high quality copper statue of the Guru is made by a fourth generation sculptor in Nepal. Highly decorated with meticulous carving and smooth surface makes this statue unique.

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.
