Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava (Tibetan: pe ma jung ne, English: Lotus Born): considered to be one of the three principal founders of Buddhism in Tibet along with Shantirakshita and King Trisisong Detsen. (See Padmasambhava Life-story Painting).
This unusual depiction of Padmasambhava originates with a 'Revealed Treasure' (terma) text which presents twelve or more different forms of the teacher which are unrelated to the Eight Principal Forms of Padmasambhava.
