About Guru Rinpoche
Tibetan Buddhists believe Guru Rinpoche is the second Buddha, the master who brought Buddhism to Tibet and promoted tantric practice throughout the Himalayan region.
Padmasambhava emanates from Buddha Amitabha, who was born from a lotus bloom. He was renowned for his ability to tame spirits and protect Dharma practitioners from their rage.
