Support Guru Rinpoche Statues for World Peace... This era is called an age of degeneration on a global scale, sickness, famine, war and conflict continue to intensify, while individually our well-being and contentment diminish. In a well-known prayer of supplication, Padmasambhava is called the "Precious, supreme protector in these degenerate times." Through the strength of his loving kindness, paintings, statues and other images of this "supreme protector" are a source of calm and harmony wherever they are placed. By participating in their construction, individuals directly bring global benefit as well as making a personal connection to these blessings. Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche's address at the opening of the Zandog Palri temple in Mysore, India...

To directly counter the prevailing negativity in the current age, in 2002 the Venerable Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche, head of the Palyul Retreat Centre in Nepal, initiated a project to create numerous statues of Padmasambhava. Her Majesty the Queen Mother of Bhutan, Ashi Kesang Choden Wangchuck, helped Khenpo Rinpoche plant the first seed by assisting in the process of building a master copy of a Padmasambhava statue in the traditional likeness of the "Lotus Born." Through Khenpo's kindness and with his blessings of the Padmasambhava Global Project for World Peace, statues are constantly being cast from the original mold and are intended for further distribution around the globe...To offer financial support with The Venerable Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche...

Exerpt from FPMT:

Padmasambhava 41 foot statue in Sikkim FPMTBuilding Guru Rinpoche statues will bring immeasurable benefit, peace, happiness, and freedom to the world. They will have immeasurable impact.
Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche) is perhaps the most universally cherished saint in all of Tibetan Buddhism. A highly realized yogi, Padmasambhava came to Tibet from India in the Eighth Century and helped establish a pure lineage which is still practiced today around the world by all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Prayers to Padmasambhava remove obstacles on the path, prevent harm, create peace in the world, and help us accomplish all we wish on the spiritual path...

Lama Zopa:
Due to Padmasambhava's great compassion, Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism flourished in Tibet and now has spread throughout the entire world. Because of that, so many people have experienced the path to enlightenment and achieved enlightenment. Due to his great compassion, the lives of infinite number of sentient beings have become meaningful.
.
His Holiness the Dalai LamaIn 2004, His Holiness the Dalai Lama determined to build 100,000 Padmasambhava statues of all sizes to be spread around the world.
.
 Foundation for the Preservation of Mahayana Tradition  
 To help create peace and happiness for all beings, Lama Zopa Rinpoche and FPMT are building 100,000 large statues of Padmasambhava all around the world. Building statues of Padmasambhava is a long tradition in Tibetan Buddhism...
Padmasambhava himself said:
  Listen, beautiful one having the form of a goddess,
  For those sentient beings who have not met me,
  Statues of me in the future
  Will become the light eliminating the darkness of ignorance. 
  Whoever builds such statues of me,
  Which become objects of offering and so forth,
  All their future lives will become meaningful
  And they will establish the banner of the teachings.

  in building these exquisite beacons of peace
  and freedom in the world. As Rinpoche says,
  Anyone who contributes will create unbelievable
  merit!

Prayer To Guru Rinpoche To Clear Away Obstacles On The Path
.
Precious guru, embodiment of all buddhas of the three times,
Great bliss, the lord of all accomplishments;
Wrathful power, who dispels all hindrances and subdues demons,
Pray bestow your blessings.
Please remove the outer, inner and secret obstacles and grant your blessings to accomplish wishes spontaneously.

     Du sum sang gyay guru rinpoche
     Ngo drup kun dak de wa chhen poi zhap
     Bah chhad kun sel dud dul drak po tsal
     Sol wa deb so jyin gyiy lap tu sol
     Chhyi nang sang wai bar chhad zhi wa dang
     Sam pa lhun gyi druh par djyin gyiy lob
.
When, due to the obstacles of the elements earth, water, fire and wind,
This illusory body, which is rented, is meeting the time to be perished, 
Requesting undoubtedly, without two pointed mind to Padmasambhava and the Goddess of the Elements, [there is] no doubt the four elements get naturally pacified.
I request, Orgyen, The One Arising From The Lotus (Orgyen Padma Chung Na),
Please bless the wishes to succeed naturally.
.
OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU PADMA SIDDHI HUM

(recite mantra many times)

My wish is that all beings awaken to their true divine Nature as did the Buddha on this very full moon night over 2600 years ago!
