Padmasambhava Statue Project - 2022
On April 2019 Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche has authorized us to build a statue of a standing Padmasambhava that when completed, will stand 9 meters tall (29 feet). Constructing the statue is a monumental endeavor for all of us here in the Nyingma community.
We are now working on sculpting the ornaments of his clothes and other fine details. Final smoothing is taking place. Our next step will be molding around 450 pieces of rubber mold for wax casting. These pieces will be used in our own foundry, in order to create the statue in the bronze. The lead sculptor is Andis Egle.
We kindly ask for your assistance. With your involvement, in the process, you become a part of Padmasambhava.
“For those to come who still not have met me,
my image will light up the night of ignorance.”
“Whoever loves and reveres the statue will have his desires fulfilled as if by a pile of riches and will be happy without fluctuation or change.”
- From the Life and Liberations of Padmasambhava – Canto 100
