Guru Padmasambhava or
Rinpoche is the seminal venerable one in Himalayan Buddhist tradition, where a
connection with the Guru or teacher is crucial in the attainment of salvation.
The gilded copper statue of Padmasambhava you see here is draped in a splendid
multi-toned robe, ornaments, and a distinctive Tibetan cap and holds a skull
cup, staff, and Vajra. The thinly defined facial hair of Padmasambhava is
representative of the physical features of the people of Nepal valley. Beautiful
ethnic patterns and Buddhist motifs cover the entirety of the gilded statue,
giving it an aesthetic quality.
