ZHABDRUNG’S THOUSAND STATUES PROJECT ALMOST COMPLETE
Zhabdrung’s Thousand Statues Project which was launched in 2005 is almost complete with the last lot of 160 to be completed. Over 1,800 statues, 15 inches tall, of Zhabdrung Khamsum Zilon have been distributed in temples across the country.
Eleven more statues which were 18 inches tall were handed over to nine rabdeys and one each for Autsho Namdroling Goenzin Dratshang in Lhuentse and a Drubdhey in Gasa.
The project is solely dependent on in-country donations and sponsors. The last 160 statues are to be distributed to various religious institutions before Zhabdrung Kuchoe, April 25.
