Guru Padma Sambhava popularly known as Guru Rinpoche, the precious teacher, was a powerful Tantric Buddhist Master. He was invited to Tibet in the eighth century to propagate Buddhism.


Here he is seated on a single lotus throne. Held in his left forearm is the khatvanga or tantric staff, surmounted by the vajra cross, symbolizing the union of wisdom and compassion, the three heads, (wet, shrunken and skull, symbolize the conquest of the three poisons) and the trident, symbolizes the mastery of the three central channels of the yogic subtle nervous system. He wears a hat surmounted by an eagle feather, and immense jewel-ornamented earrings. His robes fall around his solid body with natural ease. His round eyes seem intently fixed and the broad lips firmly set; his entire expression kind yet serious, with curled furrows where the brows come together.

Padmasambhava subdued many harmful spirits and forces that hindered the spread of the teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni. With his miraculous powers, he taught many disciples who also became perfect masters of Tantric Buddhism. He is said to have had twenty five great disciples who were instrumental in preserving the sacred teachings of Lord Buddha to the present day.

The face of Padmasambhava is painted with 18k gold. The gold is crushed into a powder and then made into a paste. The gold paste is mixed with an organic paint mixture then used to paint the most important part of any Buddhist statue; the face. This entire piece is beautifully hand painted.


This beautiful sculpture is hand crafted by the very talented artists of the beautiful Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal!
