Tibetan: pad ma 'byung gnas, gu ru rin po che
Sanskrit: Padmasambhava

Product Code: G00476

Literally, the "lotus-born" buddha of Uddiyana who brought the vajrayana teachings to Tibet in the ninth century CE. He subdued the negative forces of Tibet, founded the Nyingma school, and concealed Dharmic treasures (terma) for the benefit of future generations. When the time is ripe, these teachings are discovered by tertons who properly reveal them to others. Padmasambhava's pure land is called "Copper Coloured Mountain."
