Padmasambhava married the dakini Prabhavati and ruled the kingdom according to the Dharma, ushering in a time of happiness and peace.
He was known then as King Tortokchen, ‘The Turbaned King’.
Moved by compassion at the suffering of sentient beings, the Buddha Amitabha sent out from his heart a golden vajra, marked with the syllable HRIH, which descended onto the lotus blossom.
It transformed into an exquisitely beautiful eight year old child, endowed with all the major and minor marks of perfection, and holding a vajra and a lotus.
Seeing that as a ruler he would be unable truly to serve others and bring them spiritual benefit on a vast scale, he begged for permission to abdicate, but was refused.
So Padmasambhava employed a skilful device in order to escape.
In addition, he had no heir to succeed him as ruler, and his sight had failed him.
So he had set out on a voyage on the lake of Dhanakosha to find a wishfulfilling jewel.
He received the teachings on Yoga Tantra from him eighteen times, and experienced pure visions of the deities.
Returning to the island in Lake Dhanakosha, Padmasambhava brought its dakinis under his command.
Then, in ‘The Rugged Forest’ Parushakavana charnel ground, Vajravarahi appeared to him, and blessed him.
Saibaba is now revered as incarnation of Sri Dattatreya, and considered as Saguna Brahma.
He is attributed to be the creator, sustainer and destroyer of this universe by his devotees.
