Sponsor a Guru Rinpoche Statue
An update on the unique opportunity sponsor one of the 1,000 Guru Rinpoche statues in the Lerab Ling Temple.
In the Tibetan year of Guru Rinpoche birth (2016), to support our practice and enrich our merit, Sogyal Rinpoche commissioned 1,000 statues of Guru Rinpoche for the Temple in Lerab Ling.
Many Rigpa sangha members responded to this initiative by sponsoring one or more of the statues and we are now in the final stages of completing this incredible project.
All statues have been filled with zung and the face, as well as the katamka of each one, is still in the process of being painted. It looks like all will be ready around Losar 2018. This will be the time when the names of all the sponsors and/or the names of their loved ones, will be added to the statues.
Meanwhile in the Guru Lhakhang the shrines for the statues are finished and painted red and gold. Great masters visiting Lerab Ling like Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche, Neten Chokling Rinpoche, Tulku Rigdzin Pema and Ringu Tulku Rinpoche have already blessed the statues and conducted rabné ceremonies.
We still have around 68 statues that can be sponsored, so if you are inspired to be part of this project, you can sponsor a statue here.
If you like you can pay in monthly instalments until the amount of €430 is reached (only for European countries). Download the direct debit form here. This project is tax deductible for French tax payers.
