Dharmabyte: An Encounter With Padmasambhava in Darjeeling

From Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 29 Nov, 2018 - 13:00

Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is a recollection from Sangharakshita called An Encounter with Padmasambhava in Darjeeling.

In this lecture we are given a brief biography of Padmasambhava and an outline of the progressive Nyingmapa practices attributed to him.

N.B. Poor original recording. From the talk Padmasambhava: Tantric Guru of Tibet, given in 1972.
