Modeled after a very unique image of Yuthok Yönten Gönpo from Mentseekhang (Institute of Medicine and Astrology) in Lhasa, Tibet, a life size statue is currently being sculpted by the talented Mater Dorje in Italy to be installed in Pure Land LA in the Spring of 2018.

Yuthok is the great 12th center physician and meditation adept, known as the 'father of Tibetan Medicine.'

This statue will form the center of our Yuthok Ling, a traditional temple to be housed on our retreat land where we will hold regular retreats, teachings, and practices in the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition.
