Also known as ‘Guru Rinpoche’,
the image of this Tantric adept is
a potent symbol of awakened mind.
This morning's Lightwork is a tiny shrine of Padmasamhava.
Also known as ‘Guru Rinpoche’, this Tantric adept from India played a central rôle in bringing Buddhism to Tibet in the eighth century.
His image was pressed into porcelain from an antique Tibetan prayer flag woodblock, and raku-glazed.
The base is carved sandstone, river-worn by the White Esk (on which sandstone is surprisingly rare).
A handmade beeswax candle included ~ and the cavity also fits a nightlight candle.
The underside is signed with a sun and a moon...
The porcelain is 18cm high. Overall, the tiny shrine is 22cm high and 14cm wide.
