The inspiring and illuminating biography of the Indian tantric master who brought Buddhism to Tibet, revered as a second Buddha. This beautifully produced two volume set, with 58 colour plates, gives the complete biography of Padmasambhava, or Guru Rinpoche, as recorded by his main female disciple and consort, Yeshe Tsogyal. This text known as the Padma bKa`i Thang was rediscovered by the terton Urgyen Lingpa, and this work is a translation into English from the French edition.
The poetic text of this powerful epic with its depictions of Padmasambhava, his various manifestations and his 25 disciples, transports the reader into lands and times of majesty and wonder.

"This is indeed a treasure, having the complexity and brilliance of a finely cut crystal, its facets the 108 cantos. Padma, as Amitabha`s spiritual son, helps the beings lost in the dark ages for whom the Buddhas and bodhisattvas have not appeared. Padmasambhava is more powerful in these dark times than other teachers, for he and his teachings of the Vajrayana are as indestructible as a diamond and as pure as the lotus from which he was born. Guru Padma`s wisdom can illuminate the darkest of places, and bring light to the most hellish of beings." ~ Tarthang Tulku.
