Following in Your Footsteps:

The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal

The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal is the first of a three-part series tracing the arc of Guru Padmasambhava’s journey across the ages and landscapes of India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Beginning auspiciously on the Dakini Day of September 2014, over the last five years, Lhasey Lotsawa has collected some of the most treasured stories from these places, with the goal to provide a rich source of inspiration for pilgrims through the ages. Those who wish to follow in the footsteps of the Lotus-Born Guru will find these authentic books essential companions on their journey.

Following in Your Footsteps Cover

Following in Your Footsteps: The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal presents the incredible feats of Guru Padmasambhava in the Himalayan land of Nepal. This tantric embodiment of awakening spent years in retreat in these hills and valleys, gave countless teachings to disciples and hid treasures beyond number.

The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal explores the sacred sites where Guru Padmasambhava’s activities unfolded. Closely following Orgyen Lingpa’s Pema Kathang: The Chronicles of Padma—one of the single most important treasure biographies of Guru Padmasambhava—these Himalayan narratives are interwoven with rare accounts and visions from realized Tibetan masters such as Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa and Jamyang Khyentsé Chökyi Lodrö.

The Lotus-Born Guru in Nepal offers a fresh translation of Jamgön Kongtrul’s classic biography of Guru Padmasambhava, along with teachings by the contemporary Tibetan masters Neten Chokling Rinpoché and Phakchok Rinpoché. You will also find a collection of essential supplications and prayers—in both English and Tibetan—and beautifully rendered paintings and photographs to guide and inspire your journey into this miraculous world.
