(Tibetan: pe ma jung ne, English: Lotus Born): the main founder of Buddhism in Tibet.
Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava was the greatest Buddhist mystic saint in 8th century India. He was invited by the Tibetan King Trisong Detsen when local spirits created supranatural obstacles to the construction of Samye , the first Buddhist monastary in Tibet. After an intensive meditation retreat in Nepal he entered Tibet subduing negative energies and political obstacles to the establishment of Buddhism in the Land of the Snows. The tales of his spiritual exploits and the profound teachings he passed to the King and 24 other disciples fill thousands of volumes.
With a steady composure gazing on all beings, white in color with a reddish hue, one face adorned with a moustache and goatee, the right hand holds an upright gold vajra. The left hand placed in the lap holds a white skullcup filled with nectar, jewels and a long-life vase. The ornate katvanga staff of a Vajrayana mendicant decorated with white streamers rests against the left shoulder. Adorned with gold earrings and a necklace, the head is covered with a lotus hat, a gift of the King of Zahor, of silk brocade topped with a half-vajra and a single vulture feather. Attired in various robes of different colors reflecting the disciplines of the Vinaya, Bodhisattva and Mantra Vehicles, he sits atop a sun and moon disc above a multi-coloured lotus blossom rising from the blue waters of Dhanakosha lake; encircled by a rainbow sphere.
