Following in Your Footsteps: The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal presents
the incredible feats of Guru Padmasambhava in the Himalayan land of
Nepal. This tantric embodiment of awakening spent years in retreat in
these hills and valleys, gave countless teachings to disciples and hid
treasures beyond number.
The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal explores the sacred sites where Guru Padmasambhava’s activities unfolded. Closely following Orgyen Lingpa’s Pema Kathang: The Chronicles of Padma—one
of the single most important treasure biographies of Guru
Padmasambhava—these Himalayan narratives are interwoven with rare
accounts and visions from realized Tibetan masters such as Jamyang
Khyentsé Wangpo, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa and Jamyang Khyentsé Chökyi
The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal
offers a fresh translation of Jamgön Kongtrul’s classic biography 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 and photographs to guide
and inspire your journey into this miraculous world.
The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal is the
first of a three-part series tracing the arc of Guru Padmasambhava’s
journey across the ages and landscapes of India, Nepal, Bhutan and
Tibet. Lhasey Lotsawa has collected some of the most treasured stories
from these places, 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.
LHASEY LOTSAWA is a growing team of
young translators, editors, and writers working under the guidance of
Kyapjé Tsikey Chokling Rinpoché and Phakchok Rinpoché.
