Necklace "Padmasambhava" of Tibetan Buddhist Art. These original necklaces are based on Thangka paintings by Carmen Mensink. Padmasambhava is The Lotus-born, also know as the Second Buddha (Tib.: Guru Rinpoche).
Padmasambhava is revered throughout the Himalayan ranges as the 'Second Buddha".
In the 8th century, King Trison Detsen invited Padmasambhava from India to assist in the founding of Buddhism in Tibet. Thanks to his activity, the Dharma was firmly established.
He was famous for performing miracles and through his awesome mastery of tantric practices, he is said to have transformed hostile spirits and negative forces into guardians and protectors of the Dharma. His powerful presence allowed the completion of Samye, the first Buddhist monastery in Tibet. His compassionate act of hiding numerous 'treasure texts' or 'termas' have secured the continued revelation of Vajrayana teachings for future generations.
Padmasambhava's mark is to be found throughout the Himalaya ranges in and around the many caves he used for meditation. At these sites one can still find his hand and foot prints.
The pendant is made of plastic on a wax cord and the clasp is made of metal. The length of the necklace is 42 cm (extendable to 46 cm) and the pendant is 2.8 cm x 2.8 cm x 0.8 cm. The necklaces will be delivered in a dark red velvet bag.
