We are happy to offer to you our finely carved set of statues of Lama Tsongkhapa and his two disciples.
This set represents Lama Tsongkhapa or Je Tsongkhapa or Je Rimpoche made in Kham (Eastern Tibet) with his two main disciples, Gyaltsab Je (Gyaltsab Dharma Rinchen) and Khedrup Je (Khedrup Gelek Pelzang).
Zongkapa Lobsang Zhaba, or Tsongkhapa (what literally menas "The man from Tsongkha"), usually taken to mean "the Man from Onion Valley", born in Amdo in 1357. He became a famous teacher of Tibetan Buddhism whose activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. He is also known by his ordained name Losang Drakpa (Tib.: བློ་བཟང་གྲགས་པ་, Wylie: blo bzang grags pa) or simply as "Je Rinpoche" (Tib.: རྗེ་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་, Wylie: rje rin po che). In his two main treatises, the Lamrim Chenmo (Tib.: ལམ་རིམ་ཆེན་མོ་, Wylie: lam rim chen mo) and Ngakrim Chenmo (Tib.: སྔགས་རིམ་ཆེན་མོ་, Wylie: sngags rim chen mo), Tsongkhapa meticulously sets forth this graduated way and how one establishes oneself in the paths of sutra and tantra.
Gyaltsab Je (Gyaltsab Dharma Rinchen) was a famous student of Lama Tsongkhapa. He was appointed as second abbot of Gaden monastery and became the Gaden Tripa or “holder of the Gaden Throne”, the head of the Gelug tradition, after Lama Tsongkhapa’s death.
Khedrup Je (Khedrup Gelek Pelzang) was another Tsongkhapa’s main disciple and is recognized as the 1st Panchen Lama (one of the most important figures in the Gelug tradition).
Unlike most statues made for the tourists, all the details of this statue — such as the hands, face, etc — are made very carefully and in the details. Each statue has some space inside to be filled by traditional way. This hole is closed by cover.
