Padmasambhava said in his teachings that in the future he would manifest in different forms, lives, identities and appearances in Tibet, China and even around the world in order to tame all kinds of sentient beings.
In this degenerate age, human beings are selfish, lacking faith and are full of wrong views. Their minds are fearful as there are frequent natural disasters. At a time like this, the blessings of Padmasambhava will surpass those of all the other buddhas and bodhisattvas.
