Guru Padmasambhava

Here is a page for research and translations on Guru Padmasambhava and his two main students/consorts, Yeshe Tsogyel and Mandarava.

Work on Padmasambhava includes the prophecies by Padmasambhava (revealed by Chogyur Lingpa) on the 15th  to 21st Karmapas, as well as his predicted 8th manifestation and return as the Shambhala King.

In addition, there is a Yeshe Tsogyel Guru Yoga, by the 15th Karmapa and a post about the Long-Life practice of Padmasambhava and Mandarava held by the 15th Karmapa as well as a Praises to Mandarava by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.

Future work will be added to the catalogue/page on an ongoing basis.
