Guru Rinpoche is known as Padmasambhava Guru who was a renowned and highly learned tantric saint of Northern India. Guru was renowned for his knowledge of tantras and of their efficacious application. He remained fifty years in Tibet founding Monasteries and teaching the tantras doctrine. He is said to have subdued all the malignant gods in Tibet sparing only those that became converted to Buddhism and that promised to be defenders (Dharmapala)of the doctrine. Padmasambhava in his turn, promise to en-troll them in the Mahayana Path-eon. He claimed to have received from the dakini the books from which he acquired his miraculous power.
At the end of 50 years, Padmasambhava disappeared miraculously. Guru is represented seated on a lotus asana with the legs locked, the right hand holding the vajra and the left, lying in his lap, the Patra. He holds his special symbol, the khatvana. Padmasambhava is also known to have been born from lotus and known in Tibet as Guru Rinpoche. He came to Tibet in AD 747 at the invitation of the Tibetan King Ti-song de Tsen from India.
