Dorje Drolo Buddhist Statue, Wild Wrathful Vajra 13"
This is fully gold plated Dorje Drolo Statue, wrathfully standing on tigress. It is believed that Dorje Drolo ('Wild Wrathful Vajra') is one of the Eight Manifestations of Guru Rinpoche/ Padmasambhava, in wrathful form riding upon a pregnant tigress. The statue is 13.5" or 35cm and weight 3.75 kg.
He then dwelled in the cemetery known as the Pile of the Worlds, turning the Wheel of the Dharma for the Dakinis for five years. At the end of this time, he received the name Guru Dorje Drolo, a wisdom form, an expression of the rainbow body emanated in the final days before Padmasambhava's departure from Tibet. Dorje Drolo made many prophecies and multiplied sacred teachings through his meditative powers, securing the commitment of local spirits to extend their protection across generations. Dorje Drolo is the Buddha oriented towards the welfare of practitioners in the future - our present degenerate age.
As Dorje Drolo, Padmasambhava fearlessly treads underfoot the ever deceptive ego and severs karmic entanglements by wielding his three-edged phurba. By subduing the self-created demons and fascinations of individual predispositions, he reveals the apparitional nature of all selfish aims and exposes the mind as utterly pure and receptive to whatever arises. He challenges every manifestation of negativity with an attitude that each life situation, regardless of its outward appearance, can prove to be an instruction in truth. Thus he has the power to overcome self deception and illusions created by human perceptions, and comfort beings with the cool radiance of the Dharma.

Making Process: Lost-Wax System, Making a statue is the work of various specialist craftsmen in: wax casting, metal casting, engraving and eventually 24k gold gilding and / or stone setting. Each of these steps must be performed with excellence to produce statues of the highest quality. The lost wax method is the oldest and most refined method used by sculptors in Nepal.
All our statues are handmade. Each piece is unique and it is impossible to reproduce exactly the same. Slight differences may therefore appear in the shapes, proportions, colors and / or materials used in our descriptions and specification sheets.
