Our Nepali master artisan created our beautiful Namgyalma statue with the jewelry and crown of a Bodhisattva. At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and jewels of the statue with turquoise or red stones. At no extra charge, the skilled artisan can embellish the statue with these special decorations before delivery.
The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. Indeed, blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes their readiness to act. Additionally, devotees meditating on the color red can transform the delusion of attachment into the wisdom of discernment. The color red is often worn by other deities to pay tribute to Amitabha Buddha. This Namgyalma statue will wear the adornments very well and they will inspire all those who lay their eyes on your new statue.
Special Features of our Namgyalma Statue
There are special requirements for Namgyalma statues listed in the sutra of measurements for the construction of statues. Therefore, she is portrayed with the facial features of a young woman no more than 16 years of age. Additionally, her fantastic features include eight arms and three faces.
In the two hands in front of her chest, she holds a double Dorje and rope. Also, with her third right hand she offers gifts to her devotees by portraying the Varada mudra. She also holds an arrow and a statue of Amitabha Buddha. In her lap, she holds the vessel of longevity in the palm of her left hand. Her other left hand holds a bow and the upper left hand depicts the Abhaya “protection” mudra. There is a third eye of wisdom between her brows and an additional eye is in the palm of her right hand.
Our Namgyalma statue portrays a very popular deity in Nepal, Tibet and Mongolia. This is because Tibetan Buddhists believe she is one of the three deities of long life along with Aparmita (Longevity attribute of Amitabha Buddha) and White Tara. Additional blessings she brings to the faithful include happiness, wisdom, karma purification and protection from evil omens. She is also commonly known as Usnisavijaya.
