Padmavajra tells the tale of Bahiya of the Bark Cloth demonstrate his ability to instantly wake others up to Reality. The Buddha was the first of the Mahasiddhas, or Great Perfected Ones. In the sixth century a new kind of Buddhist practitioner appears, picking up on these aspects of the teachings of the Buddha and opening up a new universe of myth, symbol and imagination.

From the talk entitled The Buddha and the Mahasiddhas, part of the eight-part series Crazy Wisdom of the Mahasiddhas, given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, 2007.
