Structural Designs

To benefit sentient beings, the Buddha Dordenma strictly complies with the following structural designs:

  • As many as 100,000 units of 8-inch-tall Buddha Dordenma will fill up the gigantic 42-meter-tall Buddha's body and lotus; whereas as many as 25,000 units of 12-inch-tall Buddha Dordenma will reside along the walls of meditation halls inside His 20-meter-tall throne.

Hover over either of the zoomed squares in the picture above to view the interior of the Buddha Dordenma.

  • The 20-meter-tall throne will serve as three-story meditation halls; each housing certain Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in auspicious directions, effortlessly invoking visitors' inherent Buddha nature as if they entered Buddha pure realms.
  • Statues of all sizes and locations, including their thrones, are made of metal, bronze, steel, and gilded respectively.
  • To avoid the preoccupation by ruling spirits, all statues are filled with five kinds of relics, mantras, and precious substances.
  • As each unit of the statues embodies the noble intentions of the Buddha Dordenma, all units adopt meticulous elaborate designs, which are produced through the purest synchronization of mind, speech, and body of the Buddha makers.
