Description

Details

A printed thangka of the enlightened master Guru Rinpoche, the founder of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism who was famed for his tantric powers and wrathful compassion. He is depicted alongside the Indian Buddhist scholar Shantarakshita and King Trisong Detsen of Tibet. Together, these three great masters were responsible for the dissemination of Buddhism in the Land of Snows.

  • Guru Rinpoche (top centre) or Padmasambhava was a very special being who was spontaneously born on a lotus blossom as an eight-year-old child. Said to be an emanation of Amitabha Buddha, Guru Rinpoche single-handedly subdued all opposing forces to establish Buddhism in Tibet.

  • Shantarakshita (bottom left) was a great Indian pandit from Nalanda Monastery who was instrumental in establishing Tibet's first monastic community at Samye Monastery. He ordained the first seven monks in Tibet and spent his life teaching and upholding the Buddha's teachings. He was one of the most influential masters whose efforts resulted in Buddhism’s introduction to Tibet.

  • King Trisong Detsen (bottom right) was the second of the Three Dharma Kings of Tibet. He played a significant role in the proliferation of Buddhism in the Land of Snows. One of his greatest deeds was to invite the great Indian master Shantarakshita to establish Tibet's first monastic community. He also invited Guru Rinpoche to Tibet to subdue supernatural beings obstructing Shantarakshita’s Dharma activities.
