Ram representing the mythical bird of Garuda Buddhism
Agate called "nan hong" (southern red) set in his eyes
Silver head 925 and copper spout.
Garuda, fabulous bird-man of Hindu and then Buddhist mythology, son of Kashyapa and Vinatâ and brother of Aruna, the driver of the chariot of the god Sûrya. It is the vâhana, or mount, of the god Vishnu. He is also considered the king of birds.
In Tibet, Khyung (ཁྱུང) is the Tibetan name for Garuda. Coming from India, he was assimilated to the khading of the Bön religion, the golden-horned eagle. The black garuda is a deity of the Nyingmapa school of Tibetan Buddhism that is held to suppress the affections caused by the naga and spirits of the earth. It is depicted on the Lungta. It is represented in the iconography of Shambhala by Chogyam Trungpa for whom it is associated with great speed and power. Like the phoenix, it rises from the ashes of destruction, it is indestructible.

On the back is designed a wheel of Buddhist life rotating thanks to a high-precision German ball bearing.

In terms of symbols, the Buddha, sitting under the bodhi tree, saw two things. First of all, he saw a Ferris wheel. This wheel embraces the totality of conditioned existence, it is of the same extent as the cosmos, it contains all living beings. It rotates non-stop: it turns day and night, it turns life after life, it turns era after era. We cannot see when it has started to turn, and we cannot for the moment see when it will stop turning: only a Buddha sees this.

The protective windows are made of leuco sapphire like high-end watches.

Padmasambhava literally born of the lotus, is a Buddhist master of the eighth century born probably during the first quarter of this century, in the Swat Valley of Pakistan also called Guru Rinpoche ("precious master").

Although he existed historically, nothing is known of him except that he participated in the construction, at the request of King Trisong Detsen, of the first Buddhist monastery in Samye in Tibet, which he left due to court intrigues.

A number of legends have grown around Padmasambhava's life and deeds, and he is widely revered as a "second Buddha" across Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and the Himalayan states of India.

In Tibetan Buddhism, it is associated with terma literature, and is said to be an emanation of Amitabha related to tertöns to whom it would appear in visionary encounters and the practice of the guru yoga, especially in the Rimé schools. The members of the Nyingma school consider him the founder of their tradition.

According to the legendary life of Padmasambhava, the latter was born a few years after the Buddha's Parinirvana in miraculous form in the middle of a lake in the kingdom of Oddiyana located in the current Swat Valley.

He would have lived for many centuries before coming to Tibet. For Tibetans in the lineage of the Dzogchen Nyingmapa, Shakyamuni Buddha represents the Buddha principle that gives all the fundamental teachings gathered in the sutras. Padmasambhava is one with Shakyamuni Buddha but represents the principle, even higher, of the master who reveals all the initiatory teachings of the tantras. In other words, they are no different but Buddha Shakyamuni represents the exoteric aspect of Buddhism while Padmasambhava represents the esoteric aspect.

Padmasambhava is not only the founder of Buddhism in Tibet, he is also at the origin of the terma tradition or "Spiritual Treasures" transmitted by those who discover them, the Tertöns of the Nyingmapa school. Several times in his teachings Padmasambhava prophesied the coming to Tibet of the Karmapas of the Kagyu school.
