The Lotus-Born

The Lotus-Born
The Life Story of Padmasambhava, recorded by Yeshe Tsogyal


foreword by His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse

In English translation for the first time, this is "the most authoritative scripture" regarding how the Dharma was planted in Tibet, according to His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Titled in the original Tibetan "The Sanglingma Life Story," it was recorded by the dakini Yeshe Tsogyal, concealed in the ninth century at Sanglingma (Copper Temple) in Samye, and revealed by Nyang Ral Nyima Oser in the twelfth century. In addition to narrating the legendary story of a unique spiritual personality, the book contains oral instructions and advice that he left for the benefit of future generations.

Also included are "A Clarification of the Life of Padmasambhava" by Tsele Natsok Rangdrol, and extensive glossary and index, and a bibliography of Tibetan and English sources.
