Hi all, we are expecting your help to have build three statues for Samtendzong's temple !
The statues will be done in clay, then cooked and covered with be gilded with gold leaf.
There will be one statue of Boudha Shakiamuni of about one meter high (± 40 in), the two others being Guru Padmasambhava and Tara both of them about 80 cm (± 32 in).
It will take more than 3 months, beginning normally in January 2020, to prepare the statues before cooking them. Once cooked, they will be routed to Samtendzong where they will be filled with consecrated prayers, tsa-tsa, precious metal objetcs, jewels and relics, etc…, before they receive the gold leaf coating. Ultimately, their eyes will then be opened (painted), giving them life and empowering them.
The average cost will be 25.000 € and provided we got the money, we would be very happy if we could have them ready to be consecrated at the same time as the temple for beginning of May 2020 for Chamtrul Rinpoche teachings on Phowa.
Help us with your contribution to achieve this goal for all beings sake !
