Tara is the embodiment of enlightened activity. It is said that of all the Buddhas, her activity is the swiftest. In the moment of thinking of her, she is there, present before you and offering protection through her wisdom and love. This two-inch White Tara statue is made of copper and is gold plated.
Statues, thangkas, texts, and stupas are understood to be the physical representations of the Buddha's body, speech, and mind. They help us gather the beneficial conditions to gain stability and insight in our meditation practice. Kunkhyen Tenpe Nyima states:
Start out by placing a painting or statue before you, using one made by a skilled artisan and with all the appropriate characteristics. Next, arrange offerings before it and begin with the preliminaries.
The Shakya family, one of the great artisan lineages of Kathmandu Valley, have expertly crafts our statues. Under the direct guidance of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, the Shakyas shaped several molds in accordance with the Chokling Tersar tradition. These same molds are still used to this day, ensuring that every detail of our statues is in accordance with tradition. Our statues are filled with the necessary mantras and substances.
This 2 inch White tara statue is made of copper and is offered in copper oxidized and fully gold plated variants.
