Padma Sambhava

A statue made by a local Buddhist practitioner...Padma Sambhava or Guru Rinpoche is revered in Tibet as culture hero and founder of Tibetan Buddhism.  His story could be a great movie, I wonder if anyone has attempted it.  Along with Yeshe Tsogyal, his consort, he had quite an extraordinary life filled with adventures and dangers, as he vied with the established Bon shamanistic religion for the favor of the king.
