Statue of Marichi Protectress of Shambhala
Khentrul Rinpoche has instructed us that we should place a 21st Tara Goddess Marichi statue on the top of the water tank that is on the hill at the Land of Shambhala. She will be bright in the sky looking over all of the land protecting it. We will create a statue in her dancing form as Rinpoche sees her in his visions. The group in Vietnam started the 3d Model based on her painting that was done by Karen Scott. The statue will be approximately 3 meters tall and made of composite or fiberglass-type material in order to withstand the harsh Australian elements and strong winds.
Goddess Marichi is the protectress of the realm of Shambhala and Khentrul Rinpoche’s personal guardian deity. We hope to have her installed at Land of Shambhala in the Spring of 2024. Khentrul Rinpoche has invited another high Lama to come to consecrate and bless her when she is installed at the Land of Shambhala.
