This is a beautiful Hand Painted Guru Padmasambhava statue made of brass.
Guru Padmasambhava is also known as Guru Rinpoche.
Padmasambhava was the most powerful apostle of Tantricism and is a very eminent saint in the spiritual lineage of the Nyingmapa order of Tibetan Buddhism of which he was the founder.
He was born out of a lotus flower (Padma), in Lake Dhankasha in Udiayana, an ancient city of India.
He received great notoriety as a powerful exorcist and was invited by King Trisong Detsen in ca. 715 to come to Tibet to subdue the local spirits obstructing the introduction of Buddhism.
Using Phur-Pa (ceremonial "tent-stake") rituals, Padmasambhava convinced the local spirits to become protectors of the Dharma (Dharmapalas). He lived in Tibet for 50 years.

According to some early Tibetan sources like the Testament of Ba, he came to Tibet in the 8th century and helped construct Samye Monastery, the first Buddhist monastery in Tibet and
was a central figure in the transmission of Buddhism to Tibet.
Starting from around the 12th century, hagiographies concerning Padmasambhava were written.
These works expanded the profile and activities of Padmasambhava, now seen as taming all the Tibetan spirits and gods, and concealing various secret texts (terma) for future tertöns.
Nyangral Nyima Özer (1124–1192) was the author of the Zangling-ma (Jeweled Rosary), the earliest biography of Padmasambhava.
He has been called "one of the main architects of the Padmasambhava mythos – who first linked Padmasambhava to the Great Perfection in a high-profile manner.
In modern Tibetan Buddhism, Padmasambhava is considered to be a Buddha that was foretold by Buddha Shakyamuni.
According to traditional hagiographies, his students include the great female masters Yeshe Tsogyal and Mandarava.
The contemporary Nyingma school considers Padmasambhava to be a founding figure.
The Nyingma school also traditionally holds that its Dzogchen lineage has its origins in Garab Dorje through a direct transmission to Padmasambhava.
In Tibetan Buddhism, the teachings of Padmasambhava are said to include an oral lineage (kama), and a lineage of the hidden treasure texts (termas). Tibetan Buddhism holds that Padmasambhava's termas are discovered by fortunate beings and tertöns (treasure finders) when conditions are ripe for their reception.
Padmasambhava is said to appear to tertöns in visionary encounters, and his form is visualized during guru yoga practice, particularly in the Nyingma school.
Padmasambhava is widely venerated by Buddhists in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, the Himalayan states of India, and in countries around the world.

What are Ubique Botanical Perfumes?
Welcome to Pure Perfume
Ubique is Latin for "everywhere", and refers to Omnipresence, the property of being present everywhere.
u-bi-que [oo-bee-kwe; English] adverb, Latin, "Everywhere".
Ubique Botanical Perfumes contain concentrated botanicals. Plant, flower, wood oils, absolutes, tinctures, and concretes are used and may cause an allergic reaction if you have an allergy to these substances. It is always best to begin your fragrant Ubique journey with a sample before purchasing a larger size, but don't wait too long...these are limited creations and they sell out quickly!
• We do not accept returns on perfumes, personal care items, or sale items. Please purchase and try sample sizes before purchasing larger sizes. Thank you!

Mine Rough Stones and Crystals
Mine rough stones are those we procure directly from a mine instead of a mass dealer. These stones are fresh from the earth and have not been previously sold. We prefer mine rough stones as the vibrational qualities are HIGH.
ALL STONES AND CRYSTALS ARE MINED.
One should not expect perfection when purchasing from ANY dealer unless the stone has been cut and polished and is listed as "perfect".
If perfection is desired, please only purchase cut and polished "perfect" stones.
Mine rough stones may have dents, dings, etc. We photograph each stone and describe what we see. We do not sell that which is not of high vibrational quality and authentic.
