Nyingma Centrum Nederland is fortunate to host a series of international online programs on Padmasambhava, presented by Arnaud Maitland. Of the two series that Arnaud presented, Discovering Padmasambhava and Padmasambhava is Alive, videos and transcripts are still available. You can order though the buttons below. In his classes Arnaud refers to a very large Padmasambhava statue that is being sculpted at Ratna Ling Retreat Center:
Momentarily, we are sculpting a monumental standing statue of Padmasambhava under the direction of Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche. It is a wrathful, standing tall Guru Rinpoche of some nine meters, twenty-eight ft.
Under the leadership of Andis Egle, a tiny crew is entering the final phase of clay-sculpting; in a few months the arduous job of mould-making will start. Some 450 moulds will be used; a costly process. We have the funds all the way through bronzing, except for fifteen thousand dollars are still needed to be able to complete the moulding process. Two anonymous donors promised to match all funds we raise. So, we still need $ 7500. May we ask for your help, your participation?
Through your donation, your energy, mind, and heart will become an integral part of this meritorious presence of Guru Rinpoche, that may last for centuries. Please help make this Guru Rinpoche come to life. You can send us your written dedications, which we will include into the process. Your donation is received with open arms.

Padmasambhava is Alive with Arnaud Maitland (six sessions)
We orient ourselves to the possibility that Padmasambhava is deathless and thus alive today.
We are not out to prove anything, rather extend body, mind, and heart to all levels of experience, including the physical world, the invisible world, and beyond all mental activity.
Maybe Padmasambhava can be found for example, in the infinite field of seeing energy, inside the root of thoughts and feelings – within mind and heart, anywhere, anytime, and accessible to all. Yet, this gathering on Padmasambhava is Alive is mostly about invoking the energy of Padmasambhava, the blessings….
From the depths of my heart, I pray to you
To be inseparable from your compassion
I ask for your blessings upon my mindstream
