For those of you who love Padmasambhava... While sculpting him, I learned so much about Guru Rinpoche and his famous portrait--for a long time, I was simply overwhelmed about what to write. I felt that I was constantly confronted with the veils between the myths and the man. What I first dismissed as metaphor, sometimes brought me closer to the truth than I could have imagined.
With the Vajrayana World blogsite, I aspire to build an online sanctuary for sharing knowledge and experiences about Vajrayana in the West. There are numerous blog sites for other Buddhist traditions but I think this is the only one exclusively about Vajrayana for Westerners! —Lama Dechen Yeshe Wangmo
