In this talk, Dharmasara relates the story of how Padmasambhava subdued the demons of Tibet in order to build Samye monastery. The monastery works as a symbol for a flourishing spiritual community which is not effected by the destructive forces in the world, but instead puts them to the service of the Dharma. To subdue our own gods and demons, we have to become a true individual, and true individuals are what constitutes the spiritual community. This talk was given during a young men's retreat held at Padmaloka in the spring of 2022
