Who is Guru Rinpoche?
Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava), the precious master was born from a lotus in the land of Oddiyana. Guru Rinpoche is known to be the Buddha of our time. Buddha Shakyamuni actually predicted Guru Rinpoche’s appearance. Nineteen different sutras and tantras contain clear predictions of his arrival and activities.
In the Mahaparinirvana Sutra, Buddha Shakyamuni announced his own mahaparinirvana to the students who were with him at the time. Many of them, particularly Ananda, the Buddha’s cousin and personal attendant, were quite upset upon hearing this, so the Buddha turned to Ananda and told him not to worry. “Eight years after my mahaparinirvana, a remarkable being with the name Padmasambhava will appear in the center of a lotus and reveal the highest teaching concerning the ultimate state of the true nature, bringing great benefit to all sentient beings.”– Buddha Shakyamuni “Eight years after my mahaparinirvana, a remarkable being with the name Padmasambhava will appear in the center of a lotus and reveal the highest teaching concerning the ultimate state of the true nature, bringing great benefit to all sentient beings.”
