The gracious teacher Buddha gave a variety of teachings based on the readiness of practitioners. These teachings are completely based on non-violence, peace, harmony, and respect for all beings, and help us to discover our ultimate goal of peace and happiness. Buddhism became very popular all over Asia, including in Tibet, particularly for King Trisong Deutsen and his ministers. Because of his courage, commitment, and willingness, Buddhism was brought to Tibet in the 8th century by the great master Shantarakshita and Guru Padmasambhava. Since then until now, Buddhism has been the focal point of Tibetan life. So many dedicated practitioners achieved the highest state of realization that we can discover through spiritual practice.
