“In the heart of the lotus, on an island in the lake of jewels, I came, symbolising the natural self-manifesting of the Nirmanakaya. If anyone who has faith, devotion and a connection with me, prays with yearning and with real fervour, then the force of our special asprirations, and the interdependence of cause and effect, will ensure that my compassion comes to his or her help more quickly than any other Buddha. So pray, continuously and with devotion.”
Padmasambhava is sometimes known as the second Buddha – such is his importance to the people of Tibet, whose land Padmasambhava first established Buddhism over two thousand years ago. By his Tibetans devotees he is worshipped and called upon as a dynamic spiritual presence in their lives.
Our emphasis for this festival day then, is ‘working’ to create and maintain our connection to Padmasambhava. With this connection Padmasambhava will begin to transform us and help us serve the Dharma and our Sangha in a more dynamic and energetic way!
