Padmasambhava was an old friend in Lobsang's previous life and is now an abbot in a monastery in Ladakh, India.[1]

When Lobsang died in his previous life, Padmasambhava read the Book of the Dead over his corpse to guide his soul through the interval between death and rebirth.

The Long Utopia

In December 2045, Padmasambhava was in Madison West 5 for Lobsang's funeral, reading over his grave.[2]
