Following in Your Footsteps: The Lotus-Born Guru in India

Following in Your Footsteps: The Lotus-Born Guru in India presents the incredible feats of Guru Padmasambhava in the Indian subcontinent. This tantric embodiment of awakening spent hundreds of years training with the greatest masters of India, practicing in charnel grounds, protecting the Dharma, and spreading these marvelous teachings far and wide.

The Lotus-Born Guru in India explores the sacred sites where Guru Padmasambhava’s activities unfolded. Closely following Orgyen Lingpa’s Pema Kathang: The Chronicles of Padma—one of the single most important treasure biographies of Guru Padmasambhava—these narratives are interwoven with rare accounts and visions from realized Tibetan masters such as Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa and Jamyang Khyentsé Chökyi Lodrö.

The Lotus-Born Guru in India offers a translation of Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo’s summary prayer of the Pema Kathang, along with teachings by the contemporary Tibetan masters Neten Chokling Rinpoché and Phakchok Rinpoché. You will also find a collection of essential supplications and prayers—in both English and Tibetan—and beautifully rendered paintings to guide and inspire your journey into this miraculous world.

The Lotus-Born Guru in India is the second of a three-part series tracing the arc of Guru Padmasambhava’s journey across the ages and landscapes of India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Lhasey Lotsawa has collected some of the most treasured stories from these sacred places, and presents it here as an authentic source of wisdom and inspiration. These books are essential companions for anyone who wishes to truly follow in the footsteps of the Lotus-Born Guru.
