The Namgyalma - Buddhist Goddess of Longevity

Namgyalma is a female Bodhisattva,  also known as Ushnisha Vijaya in Sanskrit. In the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, the Namgyalma name itself is imbued with spiritual resonance, signifying victory over negativity and suffering. She is revered as a goddess of longevity and is believed to have the ability to grant long life to those who pray to her. Her color is white; there faced, three-eyed, youthful, and decked in many ornaments.

In Buddhist iconography, Namgyalma is often depicted as a beautiful woman with long, flowing hair, seated on a lotus throne. She is often shown holding a vase or a flask of the elixir of immortality, which is said to grant long life to those who drink it.

Namgyalma is associated with the qualities of compassion, wisdom, and the ability to overcome obstacles. She is often invoked in times of difficulty or illness, and is believed to offer protection and healing to those who pray to her.

In Tibetan Buddhism, Namgyalma is particularly revered as one of the "Long-Life Sisters," along with White Tara and Green Tara. These three female deities are often depicted together and are believed to offer protection and long life to those who pray to them.

Normally, The Namgyal Statue is crafted from copper, emphasizing durability, cultural authenticity, and a seamless blend of tradition and modernity.

In conclusion, the Namgyal Statue stands not just as a sculpture but as a gateway to spiritual serenity and cultural richness. Its profound impact on art, spirituality, and the human soul makes it a timeless symbol, inviting all to partake in the tranquility it exudes.
