Guru Padma Sambhava, most often known as Guru Rinpoche, was a great Tantric Buddhist Master. He defeated a slew of evil spirits and powers impeding the propagation of Buddha Shakyamuni's teachings. He taught countless followers, many of whom became complete masters of Tantric Buddhism, thanks to his remarkable abilities. He claimed to have twenty-five brilliant pupils who helped preserve Lord Buddha's precious teachings to the present day. Padmasambhava is regarded as the Buddha of the Dark Age, which works most effectively with negativity.
