My First Buddha

It is a beautiful, new and unique handmade, original designed and created by a Buddhist organization, soft plush Buddha. Made in different sizes for optimal ‘huggability’, it comes in two models and two color options: Tibet gold or Thai Lotus White. A fun and unique gift to give or receive. It holds a little secret inside, a Tibetan bell that makes an enchanting sound when shaken. More here

Cute and novel huh? But I can imagine the purists going :tantrum:

It looks like they fell way short of their fund raising goal ($680 out of a goal of $15,000) with less than a day left. Hopefully the project will still take off.

Here is the Vajrayana response to my-first-buddha:
Where did you find those? If I wasn't so square I'd get them both.
In the Tantra of the Beautiful Auspiciousness (bKra shis mdzes ldan gyi rgyud), this "Great Primordial Purity" (spyi gzhi) is defined as follows:

What is known as "The Great Primordial Purity”
Is the state abiding before authentic Buddhas arose
And before impure sentient beings appeared;
It is called the great Primordial radiance of immutable awareness.

*****
Sometimes you can get shown the light
In the strangest of places
If you look at it right.

Just paste "Mahakala Dunny.jpg" into your favourite search engine and you get lots of results.
