Item Description

 

Thank you once again to long-time auction donor Namse Bangdzo for this lovely, partially gold-plated statue of Amitabha.  

As described by Namse Bangdzo, Amitabha "presides over the pure realm of Sukhavati (dewachen) and is lord of the Lotus family. Rebirth in his pure land guarantees complete enlightenment in one lifetime." See Namse Bangdzo's online glossary for more details.

Namse Bangdzo is the bookstore of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, the North American seat of His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa. Karma Triyana Dharmachakra represents the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The bookstore provides dharma students and practitioners with Buddhist books, texts and practice materials. Profits from sales support the Seventeenth Karmapa's projects and activities.

Dimensions: 8"h.
