Guru Padma Gyalpo (Skt. Padmaraja) is the form in which Guru Padmasambhava originally appeared in our world. He was born to the northwest of Bodhgaya in a kingdom known as Oddiyana, four years after Buddha’s mahaparinirvana. Padma Gyalpo miraculously appeared as an eight year old boy on a lotus in the middle of Lake Dhanakosha. He remained for five years as the king of Oddiyana after being born on this lotus blossom and adopted by King Indrabhuti.Surrounded by both dakas and dakinis, Guru Rinpoche displayed the splendor of his wisdom which spontaneously overcomes the most powerful of visible and invisible beings so that they regard him as their supreme monarch or king. This is the real victory of Padma Gyalpo, the Lotus King, a very special emanation of Guru Padmasambhava who magnetizes perception and conception beyond ego-clinging and negative emotions while actively increasing our joy, peace, and spiritual realization.
Once we are able to overpower dualistic perceptions and mental habits, we magnetize others naturally. Practice and meditation on Guru Rinpoche as Padma Gyalpo outshines mundane views and deluding emotions, and enriches our accumulations of merit and wisdom. If you cut through ego-clinging, you are a great sovereign; you have mastered your relationship with everything you see and hear. In perfect command of your feelings and responses, you have the power and dignity of a splendorous king or queen. Having subdued ego-clinging and attachment to negative emotions, you are truly victorious.
