OT Rinpoche’s Treasures (2)

The second of OT Rinpoche’s treasures is an image of Jamgon Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé that was made during his lifetime and is also said to look just like him. Personally, I think he looks a bit like Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö, and OT Rinpoche said he looked like the previous Kalu Rinpoche. Perhaps there’s a bit of both in that smile? It’s certainly one of the jolliest statues I’ve seen. I wonder (and, by the way, I speculate respectfully) if Kongtrul Rinpoche had as good a sense of humour as this image suggests?
