Statue Filling Workshop
Creating the Causes for Inner Realizations
Friday, September 8 – Sunday, September 10
Statues of Buddhas are a source of profound blessings for the people of this world. Even for non-Buddhists simply looking at a statue of Buddha will bless their mind and sow the seeds of virtue and future happiness. For Buddhists, one of the commitments of going for refuge is to regard any image of a Buddha as an actual Buddha. It is therefore important that statues
are properly prepared and filled correctly. Filling statues in this special way is a very beautiful spiritual activity that creates the cause to become ‘filled with realizations’. If we fill a statue correctly we accumulate merit for as long as the statue exists. During this weekend workshop, you will learn the entire process of how to fill a statue in a qualified way according to the Kadampa Buddhist Tradition.
Gen Kelsang Norbu was ordained in 2006 by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, and has been guiding students along the spiritual path since that time. Gen Norbu is a fully qualified Teacher of the sacred art of statue filling, having received the full set of instructions from previous Lineage holders. We are delighted that Gen Norbu will be sharing his knowledge with us during this special weekend event.
