Sangharakshita gave this previously unreleased and, rather famously, off-the-cuff talk at the London Buddhist Centre in 1979. In this excerpt we hear about Padmasambhava’s principle work of subduing the demons obstructing the establishment of the Dharma in Tibet.

By Zac on Thu, 24 Feb, 2022 - 06:00
