- The Life Story of Padmasambhava
- by Yeshe Tsogyal

How often do you hear the story of a man who was immaculately born from within a lotus flower with a thousand petals, in the middle of a lake, having been sent as a meteor from the heart of the Boudha of Boundless light?

Lotus-Born  is the fabulous story of the mystic, master scholar, and outrageous yogi, Padmasambhava - the Lotus-Born, who grew up an adopted prince, was banished, burned at the stake in a neighboring kingdom, and continued miraculously unscathed, wandering through cemeteries, dancing on corpses, and proceeded to live more than five hundred years.

PadmasambhavaHe is regarded by the most sane Tibetans as a real, historical figure, the founder of Buddhism in Tibet where he subjugated demons and taught the Buddha's teachings.

The complete story of how Buddhism was planted in Tibet is available in English for the first time with the publication of this book. Lotus-Born  is a translation of a biography of the great master recorded in the ninth century by his foremost Tibetan disciple, the princess Yeshe Tsogyal. Many of these biographies were concealed as terma  treasures to protect them against the changes of time.
