On Friday, November 8, 2013, Kyabje Tarthang Rinpoche declared, "It is done."
Many of you responded to our earnest call for donations, to cast this history-making, twenty-two foot bronze statue of Padmasambhava. As you can see from the above photograph, the statue is now poured, polished, and complete. It has been consecrated, and is now installed in the main temple at Odiyan, in Northern California.
This entire project was carried out within the boundaries of a Tibetan temple complex in the United States, conducted by the authentic representatives of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism. The readers of this blog made significant donations toward the completion of this project, and may I thank each and every one of you personally.
Let It Be Auspicious!
