being what it is, having nothing to do
with good or bad, acceptance or
rejection, one might as well
burst out laughing!"

This statue of Guru Rinpoche was made by a Tibetan statue maker in North India. It is nice to find a high quality statue that does not come from a Nepalese workshop in Kathmandu. It is reminiscent of the original Guru Rinpoche statue housed in Samye Monastery in Tibet. It now sits on my shrine in Cornwall.
