Guru Chime Pema Jungne Day
Sunday, April 30, 2023
Annual day honoring the aspect of Padmasambhava, Guru Pema Jungne (Wylie: pad ma ‘byung-gnas, Skt: Guru Padmakara), meaning “Born from a Lotus”, manifests before his arrival in Tibet, the Vajrayana Buddha that teaches the Dharma to the people, embodies all manifestations and actions of pacifying, increasing, magnetizing and subjugating. The form of Guru Pema Junge is the most popularly visualized aspect of Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava — sitting on a lotus, dressed in three robes, under which he wears a blue shirt, pants and Tibetan shoes. He holds a vajra in his right hand, and a skull-bowl with a small vase in his left hand. A khatvanga leans on the left shoulder representing the great Enlightened Yeshe Tsogyal, and he wears a Nepalese cloth hat in the shape of a lotus flower. This is the form he appeared in when he first journeyed to Tibet.
