Description
 
Padmasambhava, the 8th century sage and scholar, became a central figure in the shaping of Buddhisms history in Tibet.

Revered as the second Buddha, Padmasambhava was the quintessence of a true renaissance man. This book begins with an introduction on Padmasambhavas life composed by Tarthang Tulku in both Tibetan and English. The account of Padmasambhavas life operates on many levels. In this book you will find the birth of Padmasambhava, how he came to embody the teachings, and his coming to Tibet to subdue the negative forces and provide the teachings and structures for the Vajrayana to unfold.

Also included is a section on the 25 Disciples: The Vajrayana teachings were successfully transmitted in Tibet in the 8th century by Padmasambhava to his 25 principle disciples, who preserved the sacred texts and the oral instructions through their spiritual lineages. They became the first generation of Nyingma practitioners, progenitor of a lineage that has continued unbroken for twelve centuries down to the present time. The book contains a portrait and a description of each of the disciples.
