Guru Rinpoche Statue at Namdroling

(The statue now.)
In addition to all the rainbows reported in the area (even though there’s no rain), the Guru Rinpoche statue inside the Zangdok Palri Temple at Namdroling Monastery is reported to have been seen crying. The statue’s face used to be more of a wrathful face (as all other Guru Rinpoche statues), but now the face has changed into a sad expression. I saw the reaction of some Tibetans when they saw the top picture above, and they were shocked by it. They said it isn’t the way they’ve seen the statue before, even in pictures.
NOTE: I had previously posted a 2nd picture, but I’ve removed it. It was actually an example of the facial expression normally found on Guru Rinpoche statues in general, and not a “before” picture.
UPDATE: I found a “before” picture, which can be found here: https://rigpasramblings.wordpress.com/2009/04/10/another-picture-of-guru-rinpoche-statue/
