Padmasambhava, the renowned 8th century sage and scholar, became a central figure in the shaping of Buddhism's history in Tibet. Revered as "the second Buddha," Padmasambhava was the quintessence of a true "renaissance man.' This book begins with an introduction to Padmasambhava's life composed by Tarthang Tulku in both Tibetan and English. The account of Padmasambhava's 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.
