Padmasambhava and the Sacred Groves

by Suriyavamsa (2009)

Suriyavamsa begins by asking why, of all the teachers on the Triratna Buddhist Order Refuge Tree, is Padmasambhava the only teacher with his own festival? He describes how Padmasambhava brought the Dharma to Tibet, encountering and transforming inhospitable forces he encountered there. He then gives us four things that help to make us more receptive to the Dharma so that we're not prey to our demons and are acknowledging the legacies of our ancestors.
