Our Nepali artisan created this 9″ Chenrezig statue with the crown and jewels of a bodhisattva. At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and jewels of this statue with turquoise and red coral stones. The service is complimentary, done at no extra charge. The artisan can embellish the statue with these special decorations before delivery.
The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. For example, blue represents the purity of Nirvana such as when displayed by the blue lotus flower. In combination, the two colors represent the purity of the Buddhas and their readiness to act. Additionally, Tibetan Buddhists believe that the color red pays tribute to Amitabha Buddha. While meditation on the color red will eliminate all desire for worldly pleasures.
9″ Chenrezig Statue Features
Our 9″ Chenrezig statue is featured with 4 arms, in his upper left hand he holds the stem of the lotus flower between his index finger and thumb. In Buddhism, the lotus flower is a symbol of enlightenment. As the flower rises out of the murky water to blossom in the fresh air and sunshine, so does a devotee who has passed through the sea of suffering to become enlightened.
Chenrezig sits in double lotus pose on a lotus pedestal. The rich and lustrous oxidized copper mixes well with the fine details of the statue. An additional attribute of the Chenrezig statue is the cintamani jewel between his pressed hands. Chenrezig’s devotees believe that the cintamani will grant them whatever they wish for.
