Beautiful hand-painted thangka from Nepal depicting Guru Rinpoche in union with Yeshe Tsogyal. Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, helped to establish the Dharma in Tibet in the eighth century by constructing Samye Monastary, the first Buddhist monastary in Tibet. He and his consort, Yeshe Tsogyal, are considered the heart essence of the Dzogchen teachings and the source of the Nyingma school's terma tradition. He is often called the Buddha of our times, or the Second Buddha.
This lovely thangka can serve as a continuous inspiration for your practice, and for recognizing Rigpa (awakened heart-mind) within in each moment.
