This is a short video of Guru Rinpoche’s Rangjung Cave (Self-Arisen), in Mustang, Nepal. We want to share these and other scenes from Himalayan power sites in our film, Precious Guru.
Padmasambhava "Lotus-Born" also known as the Second Buddha, was a sage guru from Oddiyana, northwestern Classical India (in the modern-day Swat Valley of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan). Padmasambhava is said to have transmitted Vajrayana Buddhism to Tibet, Bhutan and neighboring countries in the 8th century AD. In those lands, he is better known as Guru Rinpoche (lit. "Precious Guru") or Lopon Rinpoche.
