The King Arrived 20 minutes ago!
« on: August 09, 2010, 10:17:01 PM »


My beautiful and holy statue of King Dorje Shugden just arrived around 20 minutes ago. The King is 3 feet in height and what I have been looking for. Offerings have been made to welcome Him and I wanted to share this with everyone.

Wow tk, nice statue! Thank you for sharing another holy image of our Protector with us...I like the imprints it creates in my mind. Hmmm Zach, you think it should be painted? I quite like it like this, his eyes really stand out this way. Makes me feel like he REALLY can look into the three times, past, present and future.

Absolutely stunning! Thank you for sharing this picture, TK. May i post it on my facebook?

I love it! I've never seen a statue with the eyes on the body - where Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was stabbed by his opponents...

I rejoice for TK and I truly pray that one day I'll have a 3' statue of our great Protector too.

Wow, I have not seen this particular form before...are they really eyes that appeared on the spots that TDG was stabbed? Incredible!

Thank you for sharing these pics, TK.

Goodness.

I really don't know how to properly describe how I feel when I see the photos.

It's so powerful.

I love the way it makes me feel when I see the photo. It's odd though, I frown looking at it. I can imagine him moving like he's really there, and not being just a stationary statue.

This statue is really incredible. I suggest that you should keep the finishing that way, it makes the individual parts of the statue really stand out.

Like WisdomBeing, I'd like to post it on my Facebook account. Is that alright with you?

Hi Helena,

Yes, when the Fifth Dalai Lama's attendants (without his knowledge) went to murder Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, they first tried to do it by poisoning him. However, due to his attainments, he was able to dispel the poison from his body. So they tried to stab him but eyes appeared where they attempted to stab him.

Finally, out of his compassion (and in keeping his promise to Nechung to become a Protector!), he told them how to kill him - to stuff a khata down his throat and strangle him. It was during the final moments of his death that some anger arose in him, thus allowing him to become a Protector.

Hi DD
I don't think it is correct to say Anger arose, as anger is a delusion, and a very gross delusion at that, just being a desire realm delusion. I think it would be correct to say Wrath.

Thanks for the correction Mohani, yes you're right as it would be impossible to arise as an enlightened uncommon Protector from a delusion.
