Sculpting the Lotus Guru follows the creation of a 20-foot bronze statue of Guru Padmasambhava created by Dharma Publishing under the guidance and direction of Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche. Completed in under two years, the creation of this remarkable statue, possibly the largest of its size in the West, was guided by Tarthang Tulku’s teachings on Skillful Means. This inspirational, documentary film presents the transformation of clay into a finished bronze statue, highlighting each part of the bronze casting process. Featuring excerpts from the books Life and Liberation of Padmasambhava and Padmasambhava Comes to Tibet, and mantras from Prayers to Padmasambhava.
