  Our temple statues of Guru Rinpoche and lineage masters were crafted by master artisans in the holy land of Nepal. Nepal is known worldwide for their sculptors who have employed the lost-wax process for hundreds of years. Upon completion of these statues they were placed in our lhakhang and consecrated by H.E. Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche.

     Similar to stupas, these statues are be filled with relics and holy items that were gathered over the course of many years.

Listen, beautiful one having the form of a goddess, 
For those sentient beings who have not met me, 
Statues of me in the future 
Will become the light eliminating the darkness of ignorance. 
Whoever builds such statues of me, 
Which become objects of offering and so forth,
All their future lives will become meaningful 
And they will establish the banner of the teachings.

    ~Guru Rinpoche to Khandro Yeshe Tsogyal
