Guru Padmasambhava ID Request

Post by humble.student » Sat May 23, 2020 8:20 am

I was given a picture of Guru P many years ago, the same as this one, and was wondering from which cycle of teachings it comes from.

It is from a cycle called Sampa Lhundrup, and specifically, this is the form of Guru Rinpoche for warding off Mongolian Hordes.

In the long term, this worked pretty well, huh? Mongolia is no threat at all anymore.

Biding their time. The black war banner will be raised again...

Mongolia is a Buddhist country too, though Nyingma practices aren’t so popular there. And it’s been deeply affected by the gelug split

Between those who practice That Protector and those who don’t.

It’s rather sad to see. The gelugpas there without exception have reverence for HHDL. However a few of the senior lamas in the other camp were very important there shortly after the democratic revolution, and a lot of Mongolians received (and continue to receive) this practice. They don’t particularly care about the intra-Tibetan politics on this, but they get caught up in it nonetheless.

Oh I see! That is truly sad. I didn't know about this side of the split. Sad times indeed, when two of the biggest lineages are going through this kind of stuff.
