When we cast a statue, we should make it as most beautiful as we can. The statue is supposed to remain after we die. It will inspire others to do good deeds, to be their source of hope in time of suffering, and to remind them of Buddha nature and quality hidden in all of us.
Very soon we will start on our project of casting a Guru Rinpoche image for the Great Stupa.
