These exquisite statues represent the three individuals who established the Dharma in Tibet. Through their combined efforts, Buddhism flourished in the “Land of Snow” and today we can still practice these authentic teachings. Tibetan artists frequently depict these three great beings together in a combination knowns as “Khen Lob Chos Sum”.
