Description Contents
 
Padmasambhava founded Tibetan Buddhism, inspiring the most spiritually advanced culture the world has ever known. In The Life Liberation of Padmasambhava, a translation from Tibetan in two volumes and with fifty-eight color plates, we are given the complete biography of this renowned master as recorded by his consort, Yeshe Tsogyal. The poetic text of this powerful epic with its depictions of Padmasambhava, his various manifestations, and his twenty-five disciples, transports the reader into lands and times of majesty and wonder. We meet the siddhas and saints, the philosophers and kings who illuminated and set the spiritual, and cultural tone for the entire continent of Asia.
The biography's 108 cantos sweep us along with the excitement afforded only by tales of the truly great giants of history. In the first part we see and experience the teeming lands of India in all their pageantry, we travel with the Great Guru throughout this magnificent land, witnessing the deeds and meeting the religious figures who inspired the spread of Buddhism throughout Asia. The second part follows Padmasambhava from the holy land of India to the snowy peaks of Tibet where he establishes the Dharma in the face of enormous obstacles. We experience the unfolding of Tantric Buddhism in all its glory. Throughout this vast panorama of the lands, the peoples, and the spirituality of a magical, mysterious age radiates the beauty, the power, and the blessing of the precious master from Uddiyana, the second Buddha, Padmasambhava.
