The Second Buddha: Master of Time

The Second Buddha: Master of Time presents the story of Padmasambhava, legendary Indian Buddhist master widely credited with bringing Buddhism to Tibet. The legends of Padmasambhava, “The Lotus-born,” also known as “Precious Guru” (Guru Rinpoche), or the “Second Buddha” are not only Buddhist but universal. These legends have transcended vastly different periods and cultures and include such aspects as the power of human emotions, human achievement and triumph over adversity, transforming the self, empathy, and compassion.
The Second Buddha explores the visual world centered on Padmasambhava through sculpture, Tibetan scroll paintings (thangkas), textiles, manuscripts, and shrines.
