Reba Jinbo Rinpoche and Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche flew to Las Vegas to bring back three magnificent golden statues of ancient buddhas–Shakyamuni Buddha, Manjushri Bodhisattva, and Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. Both of the Bodhisattvas are really ancient Buddhas who have come back to this world as bodhisattvas to help living beings develop their wisdom and compassion so that we, too, can become buddhas. Here you see the statues being lovingly and carefully wrapped, first in silk, and then in many layers of bubble wrap. Then they were take
n out of their existing home and loaded on a rental truck. Reba Jinbo carefully constructed a frame to hold the precious cargo in place and drove the truck and Zhaxi Zhuoma back to Sanger. It was a long day, but well worth it to have these statues in place in Sanger. Plans are underway to remodel the old family room, taking out the mammoth fireplace and constructing a dais for the three precious statues to sit upon.
