Padmasambhava and Mandarava

The image to the left is a photograph of a shoe print of Padmasambhava. This imprint was left in a cave in North India at a sacred place named Tso Pema, Lotus Lake. Padmasambhava practiced here for a time with his Indian consort, Mandarava seen in the photo at the right. Her statue and a similar one of Yeshe Tsogyal stand in front of the large statue of Padmasambhava in the shrine room here in Orissa.
