Guru Rinpoche was key to the growth of Buddhism in Tibet. Guru Rinpoche translated many Buddhist books into Tibetan with the help of a team of 25 followers, 108 translators, and Santaraksita. The project took a long time to complete. He was given the title "Buddha of the Vajrayana" for his accomplishments. He disproved the public's lousy perception of tantra.
