Sambhav was a renowned and highly learned tantri saint
os Northern India. Padmasambhava was a historical teacher,
who is said to have finally converted Tibet to Buddhism.
Padma Sambhav was a renowned scholar, meditator, and
magician, and his mantra suggests his rich and diverse
nature. In the middle of the eight century the Tibetan
King Thi-Sron Detsan sent ot India inviting the learned
guru to come to Tibet. Padma Sambhav was renowned for
his knowledge of tantras and of their efficacious application.
He remained 50 years in tibet foounding monasteries
and teacing the tantra doctrine. He is said to have
subdued all the malignant gods in the tibet sparing
only those that became converted to Buddhism and that
promised to be defenders (Dharmapala) of the doctrine.
Padma Sambhav in his turn, promised to enroll then in
the Mahayana Pantheon. He claimed to have received from
the dakini the bools from which he acquired his maraculous
power. At the end of fifty years Padma sambhav disappeared
sambhav is represented seated on a lotus asana with
the legs locked, the right hand holding the vajra and
the left, lying in his lap, the patra. He holds his
special symbol, the khatvana pressed against his breast
with the left arm.
Sambhav Mantra: Om Aah Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum
Ah Hum, as we've seen, have no conceptual meaning. Often
they're associated with body, speech, and mind respectively
(i.e. the whole of one's being. So there's a suggestion
that we are saluting the qualities that Padmasambhava
represents with all of our hearts (and minds, and bodies).
Vajra means thunderbolt, and represents the energy of
the enlightened mind. Guru, of course, means a wise
teacher. Padma means lotus, calling to mind the loving
and compassionate nature of enlightenment. And Siddhi
means accomplishment or supernatural powers, suggesting
the way in which those who are enlightened can act wisely,
but in ways that we can't necessarily understand.
