It is said that once Amitabha, the Buddha of Infinite light emitted a red ray of light that pierced the Dhanakosha< Lake in Oddiyana (an ancient country now parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan) and an immaculate lotus arose from the center of the Lake. King Indrabhuti dispatched his minister to find out about the miraculous emanation. The minister found a child of eight, seated on the lotus, encircled by rainbow auras and dakinis . When the child was brought to the court and the king questioned him, he replied: "My father is wisdom. My mother is voidness. Mine is the country of Dharma. I am sustained by clarity and perplexity." He was Padmasambhava. The Lake symbolizes his eight manifestations. Seeking an immediately efficacious doctrine, Padma traveled to the highest heaven. Vajrasattva revealed to him all sound (nama) as mantra and all appearances (rupa) as enchantment. He learnt the Mahayoga Tantra and contemplated the truths blended into one and activated completion through ritual.

] King Indrabhuti adopted him as his son and spiritual master. Padmasambhava is one of his eight names, one for each of eight important actions he performed during his lifetime. He studied in Nalanda University in India and became an ordained monk. He practiced tantric Buddhism and was held in high esteem as the greatest master of the occult science in India and as such was recommended to the king of Tibet in eighth century A.D. by one of the most famous Buddhist scholars of the time Shantarakshita. King Khri-sron-ide-btsan (756-797 A.D.) invited Padmasambhava to help in the establishment of Buddhism in Tibet. He visited Tibet and stayed there for some years. His principal task there was to demonstrate the superiority of the miracle-working power of Buddhism to that of Bon, a local cult of Tibet. As a great exorcist he was able to overcome local demonic opponents of Buddhism. From a miracle-worker he grew to gigantic proportions and was spoken of as the second Buddha. He accomplished the fusion of the old and new.

He founded Nyingmapa sect in Tibet. Tibetans call him Guru Rinpoche or Precious Teacher. He is highly revered in Tibet by all four great Buddhist sects. Though the statues and paintings of him are found every Tibetan monastery, but his teachings are followed especially by the Nyingmapa sect.

In the present painting he is seated in lalitasana on a moon disk on a lotus flower. He holds a vajra in his right hand and in the left, a skull cup, filled with nectar, in which rests a longevity vase. Moreover, he is holding a khatvanga staff under his left arm. He has a lovely young pink face. He wears a red scholar's hat with a half vajra and a peacock feather on top; jeweled ornaments that are painted with gold and an ornately decorated blue robe with red outer cloak. There is a halo and mandorla behind his head and body, respectively. The mandorla is encircled with flowers and leaves. Above the figure, stylized clouds are depicted in sky. The middle and foregrounds, depicts mountainous landscape, framed by clouds. The bottom center is filled with auspicious offerings.

  • "He founded Lamaism and Nyingmapa sect in Tibet." The term "lamaism" is now considered a derogatory word in Tibetan Buddhism. It would be better to write that "He helped introduce Buddhism to Tibet and founded the Nyingma sect there." Or something similar.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.

Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
