Princess Pema Sal
(Redirected from Princess Pemasal)Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Princess Pema Sal (lha lcam padma sal). The daughter of King Trisong Deutsen, to whom Padmasambhava entrusted his own lineage of the Great Perfection known as Khandro Nyingtig. She died at an early age, after which Padmasambhava miraculously called her back to life. When her father asked why someone with the great merit to be both a princess and a disciple of the Lotus-Born master had to die while still a child, Padmasambhava told the story of how she had been a bee who stung one of the four brothers during the completion of the Great Stupa of Boudhanath. The princess was predicted by Padmasambhava to later reincarnate as Pema Ledrel Tsal (padma las 'brel rtsal) (1291-1315) and Longchenpa. Pema Sal means 'Radiant Lotus.'
- The daughter of King Trisong Deutsen, who was entrusted with an important cycle of Dzogchen teachings known as the Khandro Nyingthig. This cycle was later revealed as a terma by her reincarnation, Pema Ledreltsal, and then codified as part of the Nyingthig Yabzhi by Longchenpa, another one of her reincarnations. CJD
