Padmasambhava: Patchwork Robe Examples

Patchwork Robes

The main form of Padmasambhava, with examples below, is typically depicted wearing monastic patchwork robes representing that he is holding all of the various vows found in the vinaya literature.

Among the eight manifestations or forms of Padmasambhava the Shakya Sengge, Pema Jungne and Dorje Drolo can appear with patchwork robes.
