Denma Tsemang was an early Tibetan translator of the Tripitaka, a secretary and scribe to the king and Padmasambhava.
He was renowned for his fast writing and his calligraphy style is still used today.
He received Vajrayana teachings from Padmasambhava and achieved perfect recall. He is credited with writing down many termas, including the Assemblage of Sugatas, connected to the Eight Sadhana Teachings.
He was accepted as a disciple by the king of spiritual instructions from Oddiyana, Guru Rinpoche, and was the main recipient of the Wrathful Mantra deity meditation instructions.
He also served as a scribe for many of the yellow parchment texts.
The 25 disciples of Padmasambhava also called as Guru Rinpoche were instrumental in the spread of Buddha's teachings throughout Tibet. They emerged as masters, having achieved great wisdom, understanding, and success.
These Mahasiddhas are believed to have special future incarnations due to their connection with Padmasambhava's terma treasures.
To this day, these disciples continue to be reborn as Tertons, imparting the teachings of Padmasambhava in a contemporary and authentic way to new .
