Following in Your Footsteps: The Lotus-Born Guru in Tibet

The Lotus-Born Guru in Tibet is the third installment of our three part series, following our previous release, The Lotus-Born Guru in India. Samye Translations has collected some of the most treasured stories from India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet with the goal to provide a rich source of inspiration for pilgrims through the ages. Those who wish to follow in the footsteps of the Lotus-Born Guru will find these authentic books essential companions on their journey.

Over these past years, our journey in the footsteps of the Lotus-Born Guru has taken us through the rolling hills and valleys of Nepal and across the vast plains of India. The lotus flower from which Padmasambhava took birth on Lake Dhanakosha still blooms in the heart of the faithful, just as the charnel grounds of ancient India still blaze with the fierce presence of the dakinis. The mountains of Nepal, too, still harbor sites of practice and pilgrimage, all established in perfect preparation for this, the greatest of his feats: the transmission of the Dharma to Tibet, and through this to the world at large.

The Lotus-Born Guru in Tibet offers a translation of Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa’s The Wish-fulfilling Tree—a treasure autobiography of Guru Padmasambhava—along with teachings by the contemporary Tibetan masters Neten Chokling Rinpoché and Phakchok Rinpoché. You will also find a collection of essential supplications and prayers—in both English and Tibetan—and beautifully rendered paintings to guide and inspire your journey into this miraculous world.
