It is said that the tree which overshadowed the house in which he was born had the imprint of a Buddha on its leaves. Tsongkhapa received the Buddha’s teachings from all Tibetan Buddhist traditions, but his main source of inspiration was the Kadampa tradition.

This resin sculpture images Mandarava, consort of Padmasambhava, the great Indian tantric master who established Buddhism in Tibet. Mandarava was a princess in northern India; her name means Celestial Red Flower.

Mandarava's father, the king, did not like Padmasambhava and threatened to kill her if she did not renounce him. She refused, so he tied them both up and lit a fire! As Padmasambhava was a master of magic, he manifested a lake around their feet, preventing them from being burned. This convinced the king that it was their destiny to be together.
