Interpretation / Description

Nyima Ozer, Pema Jungne (English: Rays of the Sun, Lotus Born): #6 from the set of Eight Manifestations of Padmasambhava.

Nyima Ozer represents the period of time when Padmasambhava remained for 5 years in a charnel ground in the Indian kingdom of Baiddha teaching to the dakinis. At this time he also defeated the Tirthakas (Hindus) and transmuted poison he had ingested and proceeded to display various miracles.
