Guru Rinpoche

Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, or the Mahaguru, was a Tibetan Buddhist master who possessed mystical powers and bestowed his empowerments upon the Indian princess Mandarava and the Tibetan queen Yeshe Tsogyal, his two main consorts. They are usually portrayed alongside him in the thangkas. Guru Rinpoche’s thangkas have a very surreal look, with their peaceful and serene features and the use of lighter tones.
